Low cost organic semiconductor

Scientists have discovered a semiconductor that can be used in Quantum computing that is much lower cost than traditional ones.

The blue pigment, copper phthalocynanine, is used in bank notes all over the globe and has been for many years. It has been disovered that it can be put into a state of superpostion, that is being in two states at one time. This is the key function to quantum quibits and are used to replace traditional transistors (the main component in CPU and Integrated curcuits in electronics). Becuase they are only single atoms in size, they are much smaller than silicon compounds used in semiconductors now.
