Coupled quantum dots may offer a new way to store quantum information

Researchers have for the first time created and imaged a novel pair of quantum dots -- tiny islands of confined electric charge that act like interacting artificial atoms. Such 'coupled' quantum dots could serve as a robust quantum bit, or qubit, the fundamental unit of information for a quantum computer.

Unexpected behaviour of the material: From 2D crystal to 1D wire

No volume, not even a surface: a one-dimensional material is like a wire and has properties that are completely different to its 3D counterpart. Physicists have now discovered a system that, at warmer temperatures, forms self-organized wires consisting of only one row of individual atoms.
