Submission + - Physicists Move One Step Closer to Quantum Compute (

Mightee writes: "A team of Physicists at Rice University have covered another milestone in the development of such particles. According to a research paper published recently, physicists claimed to have developed a device called "Quantum spin Hall topological insulator". It is prepared from a commercial grade semiconductor also being used in manufacturing goggles for night vision. It acts as an electron super highway and boasts primary importance in the development of quantum particles.

According to experts at Rice University, these particles will prove their worth in accelerating the processing speed of computing tasks related to code breaking, climate modeling and bio modeling simulations. To add more to your astonishment only 30 qubits alone can take over the job of 1 billion digital transistors."
