By firing a Fibonacci laser pulse at atoms inside a quantum computer, physicists have created an entirely new, strange phase of matter that behaves as if it had two dimensions of time.

The new phase of issuecreated by using lasers to rhythmically move a string of 10 ytterbium ions, enables scientists to store information in a much more error-proof way, paving the way to quantum computers that can hold data for a long time without getting confused. The researchers described their findings in a paper published on July 20 in the journal Nature (opens in new tab).
