…National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers are tackling one of the fundamental problems in quantum information science: how to produce pure elements of quantum information—that is, those that start and remain in a well-defined “spin state”—at practical temperatures…

…Instead of conducting a combinatorial search for candidate quantum materials, they worked toward designing and synthesizing molecules related to those they had studied for photovoltaics, but with the desired properties to serve as qubit candidates…
