New Superlattice By CCNY Team Could Lead To Sustainable Quantum Electronics


A team of international physicists led by Lia Krusin-Elbaum of the City College of New York, has created a new topological magnetic superlattice material, that at a high temperature can conduct electrical current without dissipation and lost energy. The finding, detailed in a paper published in "Nature Physics," could be the basis of research leading to an entire new quantum materials class that can potentially provide a platform for error-free quantum computing.
