A study conducted by scientists at the University of Virginia School of Medicine and collaborators has the potential to revolutionize electronics based on elements found in nature.

A press release reveals that DNA was utilized to guide a chemical reaction which overcame the barrier to Stanford physicist William A. Little’s superconductor, which was thought impossible to overcome.

Their superconductor was created by assembling carbon nanotube lattices with chemistry. Researchers say the DNA-enabled method could be used in physics and materials science for a variety of research applications. Moreover, it could lead to Little’s room-temperature superconductor, which could have a profound impact on electronics. 

They have achieved an important breakthrough in superconducting materials, which could revolutionize quantum computing, enabling it to greatly improve other countless scientific fields through its hyper-fast calculations.
