Diamonds and quantum computing
Quantum computing is predicted to change the technology landscape in ways most people can't imagine. Interestingly, the article "Synthetic Diamond Technology Could Make Quantum Practical" from EET Asia discusses this exact subject.
"Diamonds may represent one of the turning points for the practical realization of quantum computers, thanks to the possibility of exploiting their imperfections on an atomic scale. These imperfections make it possible to store qubits that can be read without altering their structure, which is one of the main problems preventing quantum computers from becoming practical. In this way, it might be possible to create and use diamond-based memories capable of storing qubits."
The article goes on to discuss three reasons why, as well as discussing the quantum accelerator.
