Uranium Ditelluride as a Topological Superconductor

Scientists on the hunt for an unconventional kind of superconductor have produced the most compelling evidence to date that they’ve found one. In a pair of papers, researchers at the University of Maryland’s (UMD) Quantum Materials Center (QMC) and colleagues have shown that uranium ditelluride displays many of the hallmarks of a topological superconductor–a material that may unlock new ways to build quantum computers and other futuristic devices.
