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. Littleā€™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.
