SCIENCE STUDIO: Qubits
Russ talks with Kyriakos Porfyrakis, Head of Laboratory for Carbon Materials at the University of Oxford. Kyriakos is studying endohedral fullerenes, or "qubits" - atoms that are inserted into spherical fullerene molecules in order to induce electronic properties. Qubits may help revolutionize electronic devices in the near future. http://www.materials.ox.ac.uk/peoplepages/porfyrakis.html
