Professor Gang Xiao’s Lab has developed a technique that can potentially generate millions of random digits per second by harnessing the behavior of skyrmions — tiny magnetic anomalies that arise in certain two-dimensional materials. Generating true random numbers is difficult, but they are extremely useful in cryptography and probabilistic computing. Read more.
