Manufacturing quantum computers would be a lot easier with existing technology than the exotic components currently used to build them.
As electronic transistors get tinier, they approach a point at which they won't be able to get smaller. How can we keep shrinking our devices, and making them more powerful at the same time? Light.
As we reach the limits of what can be done with silicon, the search for new and improved superconductors is on.
Silicon isn't the perfect semiconductor, it's just the one we're using. How can we ensure our electronics keep get getting faster in the face of silicon's natural physical limits?
A team of researchers have determined a new way to distinguish quantum bits in the eventual creation of a quantum computer…
