Spin-based quantum computing is getting a boost from researchers at the University of New South Wales. Potential uses may be found in: Quantum spin-based devices (such as spin transistors, spin-orbit qubits, and quantum logic gates), superconductor systems (based on Majorana particles), and new topological materials with low resistance to electron flow. This report is on the heels this week of other reports sharing spin-based studies.
