The age of nano-computing is upon us, already showcased in the form of turning flags into loudspeakers, nano batteries made of recycled glass, and smart, nano sensor-embedded bandages, but with the great power of nanoscale and quantum computing comes problems, mostly in the form of heat production. A team of researchers from Aalto University in Finland has developed a solution — a built-in nano-refrigerating system. While all computers generate heat that needs to be controlled, usually in the form of built-in fans, the scale and superposition of 'qubits' in quantum computers means that every component needs to be tightly controlled — even…
