Scientists discover new state of matter  August 15, 2019
A team of researchers in the US (New York University, Wayne State University, SUNY Buffalo) have shown the experimental evidence for a topological superconductivity. They analyzed a transition of quantum state from its conventional state to a new topological state, measuring the energy barrier between these states focusing on majorana particles. Majorana particles have the potential to store quantum information in a special computation space where quantum information is protected from the environment noise. As there is no natural host material for these particles the new form of matter provides a platform on which these calculations could be conducted. The discovery of topological superconductivity in a two-dimensional platform paves the way for building scalable topological qubits to not only store quantum information, but also to manipulate the quantum states that are free of error…read more.
