We propose to use an ancilla ﬂuxonium qubit to interact with a Majorana qubit hosted by a topological 1D wire. The coupling is obtained using the Majorana qubit controlled 4 π Josephson effect to ﬂux bias the ﬂuxonium qubit. We demonstrate how this coupling can be used to sensitively identify the topological superconductivity, to measure the state of the Majorana qubit, to construct 2-qubit operations, and to implement quantum memories with the topological protection.
