It was shown recently that Weyl fermions in a superconducting vortex lattice can condense into Landau levels. Here we study the chiral magnetic effect in the lowest Landau level: The appearance of an equilibrium current I along the lines of magnetic flux Phi, due to an imbalance between Weyl fermions of opposite chirality. A universal contribution dI/d Phi = (e/h)(2)mu( )(at equilibrium chemical potential mu relative to the Weyl point) appears when quasiparticles of one of the two chiralities are confined in vortex cores. The confined states are charge-neutral Majorana fermions. (C) 2020 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Inc.
