“Time Crystal” bypasses the laws of physics and offers a new era of quantum computing

Connecting the two “time crystals” of the helium-3 superfluid just one thousandth above absolute zero could be a major step towards a new kind of quantum computer.

Time crystals are a strange structure of atoms, their existence was predicted only in 2012, and experimentally proved several years later. In ordinary crystals such as diamonds and salts, the atoms are arranged in a regularly repeating spatial pattern (lattice or similar framework). And, like most materials, they stop shaking when the atoms are in the ground state (the lowest possible energy level).
