New magnetic materials able to help develop quantum computers that can operate under normal temperature
A team from the University of Texas at El Paso has developed a new material for quantum computing that can work under normal temperature, and its magnetism is 100 times as much as pure iron. The material is expected to be used to develop quantum computers that can work under normal temperature.
