Quantum Magnetism in the Rare-Earth Pyrosilicates
In recent years, both physicists and non-physicists have shown immense interest in the burgeoning field of quantum computing and the possible applications a quantum computer could be used for . However, current quantum computers suffer from issues of decoherence: where the quantum state used for computation is broken by external noise. A new possible avenue for quantum computation would be to use systems that are intrinsically protected from some level of noise, such as topologically protected states. Topological states are inherently protected from small perturbations due to their topological ...
