New form of matter discovered

Physics discover the most exciting form of matter: Excitonium

Researchers from the University of Illinois made a discovery that left the scientific world positively excited. They discovered a new form of matter postulated over 50 years ago, consisting of a boson, a composite material that can allow it to act as a superfluid, superconductor, and an insulating electronic crystal. If that sounds bizarre… well, it kind of is.

Pretty amazing material.

Someone at Intel is already trying to figure out a way to make a transistor out of these I imagine :)

If excitonium can be either a superconductor or an insulator, presumably under differing conditions, it could be made to act as a highly efficient semiconductor. Given that, and the  minute size indicated, it might enable a whole new scale of computer architecture, and without the thermal problems currently contemplated with further miniaturization.
