Topological superconductors are special kind of superconductors that exhibit in-gap Majorana states, among other unusual properties. Topological superconductors are particularly interesting for the development of quantum computing technologies since these confined states can function as qubits.Recently, some physicists have started investigating the possibility of building quantum skyrmion crystals, which combine superconductors with swirling arrangements of atomic magnetic dipoles (spins). To create topological superconductivity, the majority of these initiatives proposed sandwiching quantum skyrmion crystals between superconductors.Two researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Kristian Maeland and Asle Sudb, have recently suggested a topological superconductivity alternative model system that does not use superconducting components.
