Superconducting nanowire improves electronics efficiency

Nanowire could provide a stable, easy-to-make superconducting transistor Inspired by decades-old MIT research, the new technology could boost quantum computers and other superconducting electronics. “That’s what led to conventional superconducting electronics, and then ultimately to the superconducting quantum computer,” says Berggren. In Berggren’s device, current runs…

“That’s what led to conventional superconducting electronics, and then ultimately to the superconducting quantum computer,” says Berggren. In Berggren’s device, current runs through a superconducting, supercooled wire called the “channel.” However, the Josephson junction “is fundamentally quite a delicate object,” Berggren adds. “Wires…
