Scientists from the University of Bordeax and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have performed a unique experiment involving the optical manipulation of individual Abrikosov vortices in a superconductor. Their results could help design new logic units based on quantum principles for use in supercomputers. Superconductivity — zero electrical resistance — occurs in certain materials in the temperature range from −273 to −70 degrees Celsius. When a material transitions into this state, the magnetic flux fields are expelled. A superconductor...Read full article
