We study quantized vortices in P23 superfluids using a microscopic theory for the first time. The theory is based on the Eilenberger equation to determine the order parameters and the Bogoliubov-de Gennes (BdG) equation to obtain the eigenenergies and the core magnetization. Within axisymmetric vortex configurations, we find several stable and metastable vortex configurations which depend on the strength of a magnetic field, similar to a v vortex and o vortex in He3 superfluids. We demonstrate that the o vortex is the most stable axisymmetric vortex in the presence of a strong magnetic field, and we find two zero-energy Majorana fermion-bound states in the o-vortex core. We show that the profiles of the core magnetization calculated using the BdG equation are drastically different from those calculated using only the order parameter profiles known before.
