Majorana Fermion

A bird? a plane? nope......but it is a Majorana fermion. So lets talk about these guys. You have head about dark matter, yes? Well the thought is that the universe is composed of about 73% of it. It's just a matter of finding the stuff. It is now believed that Majorana fermions are the carrier force bosons for dark matter. On April 12th, Kouwenhoven went public to Science Express, reporting that they were able to create a nanoscale electrical device where a pair of majorana fermions "appeared" at the ends of the nanowire.This is quit the interesting prospect if it proves true. The advances for computer technology alone will be mind blowing. Cause it will lead to one thing "Quantum Computer."
