Quantum computing closer with germanium

Original transistor semiconductor gets new quantum life

The future of computing may be seeing a transition back to germanium, a material that is at the same time the past and future of quantum computing.

While today's computers have become exponentially faster, smaller and more powerful than their World War II predecessors, they work much the same way – carrying out complex computations with binary code, a stream of zeros and ones.

The very first of th...
