The new discovery of physicists brings the appearance of quantum computers of the future closer
On the way to create a full-fledged quantum computer are both fundamental and technological difficulties. Progress does not stand still, but to prove the existence of some theories turned out to be a real test. Physicists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reported the discovery of a unique type of material that would bring closer the development of fault-tolerant quantum computers.
In the course of the experiments, MIT researchers discovered material exhibiting highly exotic physical phenomena known as Kohn anomaly. According to experts, further study of the find will help to understand why metals and other materials have complex electronic properties that underlie modern technology. The study of such phenomena is complicated by the fact that they are extremely short-lived and insignificant.
Earlier, Kohn anomaly was only seen in conductive materials such as graphene, but physicists found it in a material called Weil’s topological semimetal, namely tantalum phosphide. Scientists are confident that the discovery will shed light on important aspects of the interaction between electrons and phonons.
According to physicists, an understanding of electron-phonon bonds can lead to the development of high-temperature semiconductors, which will become the basis of quantum computers of the future.
