Abstract

It has been thought that the long chiral edge channels cannot support any supercurrent between the superconducting electrodes. We show theoretically that the supercurrent can be mediated by a nonlocal interaction that facilitates a long-distance information transfer in the direction opposite of electron flow. We compute the supercurrent for several interaction models, including that of an external circuit.
