This paper investigates the finite-time passivity and passification design problem for a class of Markovian jumping systems with mode-dependent time-varying delays. By employing the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional method, delay-dependent sufficient criteria are derived to ensure the mean-square stochastically finite-time passivity. Based on the established results, mode-dependent passification controller is further designed in terms of linear matrix inequalities, such that the prescribed passive performance index of the resulting closed-loop system can be satisfied. Finally, two illustrative examples are given to show the effectiveness of the obtained theoretical results.
