Magnetic Quantum Computing Circuit doesn’t need any electricity

news.mit.edu
  • MIT researchers have made a magnetic circuit that generates 0s and 1s without any electrical input.
  • The device consists of layered nanofilms of magnetic materials, separated into two halves by a nanometer-wide wall.
  • It is a promising new approach to building quantum computers, one that requires only the natural magnetic properties of materials to work.
  • Researchers compare it to a water pipe, in which you can control how the spin wave (quantum property of electrons) moves across magnetic materials.
  • So far it’s not usable, but researchers are planning to build a working circuit and perform basic calculations with it, to see if the device is viable.
