In the quest for smaller, faster computer chips, researchers are increasingly turning to quantum mechanics -- the exotic physics of the small. The problem: the manufacturing techniques required to make quantum devices have been equally exotic. That is, until now. Researchers at Ohio State University have discovered a way to make quantum devices using technology common to the chip-making industry today. This work might one day enable faster, low-power computer chips. It could also lead to...
