The full spatial 3D profile of Majorana bound states (MBS) in a nanowirelike setup featuring a semiconducting carbon nanotube (CNT) as the central element is discussed. By atomic tight-binding calculations, we show that the chiral nature of the CNT lattice is imprinted in the MBS wave function which has a helical structure, anisotropic in the transverse direction. The local spin-canting angle ...
