With Majorana Particles Proven, Enter Majorana Quantum Bits
The importance to quantum computing is the stability of the Majorana particle. In 2012, the University of Delft experimented in proving the existence of Majorana particles. Now, having improved upon the experiment, researchers at QuTech and Microsoft have given the Delft team the tools which have proven the existence of the antiparticle, the Majorana. There is much work to do to bring these particles into the race for quantum computing.
