Abrikosov vortices help scientists to explain inconsistencies in ‘dirty’ superconductors theory

International team of physicists including scientists from University of Grenoble, Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Weizmann Institute of Sciences and University of Utah explained anomalous low temperature behavior of ‘dirty’ superconductors. These materials possess various non-trivial properties which make them necessary part of quantum computers with superconductive qubits. In a paper published in Nature Physics, scientists report how ‘dirty’ superconductors can violate the conventional theory of superconductivity. With these results, it becomes possible to engineer superconductive qubits that are perfectly isolated from the outer disturbances and thus can be fully used for quantum computing.
