Researchers take first look into the 'eye' of majoranas

Majorana fermions are particles that could potentially be used as information units for a quantum computer. An experiment by physicists has confirmed their theory that Majorana fermions can be generated and measured on a superconductor at the end of wires made from single iron atoms.
