Abstract

We consider critical quantum transport in disordered topological quantum wires at the transition between phases with different topological indices. Focusing on the example of thermal transport in class D (Majorana) quantum wires, we identify a transport universality class distinguished for anomalous retardation in the propagation of excitations-a quantum generalization of Sinai diffusion. We discuss the expected manifestations of this transport mechanism for heat propagation in topological superconductors near criticality and provide a microscopic theory explaining the phenomenon.
