An international team including researchers from Rice University and the Technical University of Vienna have developed a theoretical method for identifying novel materials with special electronic properties necessary for quantum computers.
Supercomputers haven't yet calculated the behavior of the strongly interacting electrons in topological semimetals. However, the researchers developed a method that combines simplified model calculation, mathematical symmetry considerations, and a database of known materials to identify promising candidates that could have the theoretically expected topological properties.
They describe their work in the journal Nature Physics.
