A new type of quantum bits

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Age of Quantum Bit.

In computers of the future, information might be stored in the form of quantum bits. But how can a quantum bit be realized?

A research team from Germany, France and Switzerland has realized quantum bits, short qubits, in a new form. One day, they might become the information units of quantum computers.

To date, researchers have realized qubits in the form of individual electrons. However, this led to interferences and rendered the information carriers difficult to programme and read. The group has solved this problem by utilising electron holes as qubits, rather than electrons.
