Utah researchers create new material, may allow development of superfast computers

The material, known as a topological insulator, works as both an insulator and a conductor, and allows computers to run at very high speed in room-temperature environments.

The material, known as a topological insulator, is not a new concept, the materials have been known about for a decade now, but have faced a challenge of finding a metal which conducts electricity on its surface, rather than its interior, bridging the so-called energy gap. The energy gap is the nece...
