Quantum computers put a high demand on their underlying material.

However, superconductors present a way of conducting electricity without resistance once cooled to sufficiently low temperatures, which is why they're an ideal resource in a world trying it's hardest to reduce energy consumption. But a newly discovered and rare kind of superconductors could change the course of quantum computers.

A group of researchers discovered a new and rare topological superconductor called LaPt3P, and it could become central to the nascent industry of quantum computing, according to a recent study published in the journal Nature Communications.
