Physicists create new hybrid material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations
An international team of physicists, led by Research Professor Christos Panagopoulos from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), has created a novel “hybrid” material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations. This breakthrough could form the basis for a new generation of quantum computational hardware.Read more
