According to the researchers, their findings "provide a pathway toward tunable and ordered MZM lattices as a platform for future topological quantum computation."


A team of scientists from China, Japan, and the U.S. have found a way to form an ordered and tunable Majorana-zero-mode (MZM) lattice, a milestone step to greatly improve the performance of quantum computation.

The research findings were published in the academic journal Nature on June 8, led by scientists from the Institute of Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Boston College.

MZMs are seen as building blocks for constructing topological qubits. A qubit is a quantum bit, the basic unit of information in a quantum computer.
