New Material Allows Quantum Computing without Overheating

(July 21, 2016) Recently, with the use of some everyday materials, researchers discovered a breakthrough that would allow quantum computing at room temperature.

“A long conduction electron spin lifetime in metallic-like material made up of carbon nanospheres […] was produced simply by burning naphthalene, the active ingredient in mothballs,” reported TheConversation.com.

“The material is produced as a solid powder and handled in air. It can then be dispersed in ethanol and water solvents, or deposited directly onto a surface like glass,” TheConversation explained, “As the material was remarkably homogeneous, the measurements could be made on the bulk solid powder.”

A new record electron spin lifetime of 175 nanoseconds at room temperature was achieved as a result of this discovery.

Details of the breakthrough were published in Nature Communications.
