(TheNextWeb) A team of scientists recently determined certain quantum particles can regenerate after they’ve decayed. Theoretical physicists from the Technical University of Munich and the Max Planck Institute conducted simulation experiments to determine that certain quasiparticles are essentially immortal. Per the second law of thermodynamics nothing lasts forever, but these quantum particle fields can reassemble themselves after decaying – just like the phoenix from Greek mythology.
In the more immediate, grounded-in-reality view, immortal quasiparticles could help in the development of useful quantum computers. Figuring out how to handle quantum RAM hasn’t proven simple, using recurrent quasiparticles for data memory could be a game-changer there.
