Everyone Will Live in Cities on the Ocean Soon, Here's Why
Several recent studies have been published on the subject of superconductor research advances. As well, papers revealing critical progress in quantum materials and further understanding of quantum data applications.
However, superlattices are an even lesser-known buzzword. Unlike superconductors (just beginning to be barely understood themselves), superlattice materials involve a completely separate effect, and operation. These insulators may form a crucial ingredient of eventual quantum computing mechanisms.
So, here is a new development which hopes to yield future results in quantum computing:

Your grandkids' water blocks
Stanford scientists slow down light and steer it with resonant nanotennas"
"These “high-quality-factor” or “high-Q” resonators could lead to novel ways of manipulating and using light, including new applications for quantum computing, virtual reality and augmented reality..." even "light-based WiFi"
Molecular-engineered artificial photosynthesis? That's even a thing?
According to Cambridge scientists' new research, yup...
The biggest flipping challenge in quantum computing
In October 2019, researchers at Google announced to great fanfare that their embryonic quantum computer had solved a problem that would overwhelm the best supercomputers. Some said the milestone, known as quantum supremacy, marked the dawn of the age of quantum computing. However, Greg Kuperberg, a mathematician at the University of California, Davis, who specializes in quantum computing, wasn’t so impressed. He had expected Google to aim for a goal that is less flashy but, he says, far more important.
First up: yet another experiment has further pushed the boundaries of our understanding--and practical knowledge--of novel superconductor materials. Advancements here are critical for the quantum computing framework of the near-future.
Manipulating microstructures under extreme conditions of field and scale, researchers have delved deeper into the properties of another unconventional superconductor, this time a unique crystalline metal.
Next: much as the destiny of quantum computing is intertwined with our mastery of superconductive structures, so is the fate of a quantum ecosystem closely-linked to our ever-increasing proficiency with AI architecture.
Scientists at UCL have increased the viability of neural networks in an energy-starved future where practical deployment will be crucial; meanwhile, speaking of energy, US Dept. of Energy researchers have studied the application of AI-inspired learning algorithms to improve the functionality of quantum computing, which promises to be instrumental in developing new technologies in their own right, as we move past the age of supercomputers and into the era of quantum combinatorial methodology.

Another step toward our near future of scalable quantum photonic technology:
Researchers have developed a new CMOS-compatible silicon photonics photon source that satisfies all the requirements necessary for large-scale photonic quantum computing. The research represents a significant step toward mass-manufacturable ideal single photon sources.
