The company’s 20TB SMR HDDs will be available in the second half of this calendar year, in the coming…

Topological Superconductor Research Might Be Key to Accessible Quantum Computing

Topological Superconductor Research Might Be Key to Accessible Quantum Computing

A new discovery focused on superconductors that use exotic particles may have just laid down a path towards greater quantum computing stability and scaling, potentially pushing up the timetable for accessible quantum computers.  Researchers at the University of Maryland’s (UMD) Quantum Materials Center (QMC) have been exploring a new superconducting material that appears to be…
