Elusive #Majorana Particle Takes Major Step Towards Quantum Computing

An international team of researchers has fashioned a device from nanowires that may finally prove the existence of long-theorized quasiparticles known as Majorana particles . Once these Majorana particles are identified and isolated, they could form the basis of a quantum bit—or qubit —that would process information in a new kind of quantum computer with improved stability . Ever since 1937, when the Italian physicist Ettore Majorana first theorized the existence of the quasiparticle that takes his name, there has been much effort to prove that it really exists, with little to show for it. But this changed back in 2012, when researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands saw strong hints of Majoranas when they sent electrons into a semiconducting nanowire placed alongside superconducting material. Since that 2012 Delft research, there have been...
