vikingpower writes "A research group at Technical University Delft around prof. Kouwenhoven, has probably not only spotted pairs of so-called Majorana Fermions for the first time ( these had been predicted to exist by the Italian physicist Ettore Majorana ), but also demonstrated that, by generating them at the end of an Indium-Arsenide microwire, quantum computing with them may have come one more step closer to reality. The excitement around prof. Kouwenhoven at the American Physical Society annual congress in Boston, after he completed his presentation, was considerable. A nice illustration is provided by this newspaper article ( in Dutch )"
