…New technique could enable processing speeds a million to a billion times faster than today’s computers and spur progress in many-body physics…

“No one has been able to build a scalable and fault-tolerant quantum computer so far and we don’t even know what that would look like,” said study co-first author Markus Borsch, U-M doctoral student in electrical and computer engineering. “But basic research like studying how electronic motion in solids works on the most fundamental levels might give us an idea that leads us in the right direction.” 

…Seeing electrons move in increments of one quintillionth of a second could help push processing speeds up to a billion times faster than what is currently possible…
