By extension, the set of qubits comprising the memory of a quantum computer could exist in every possible combination of 1s and 0s at once. Where a classical computer has to try each combination in turn, a quantum computer could process all those ...

Before a quantum computer made up of enough qubits to perform meaningful computations can be scaled, however, scientists need to improve the quality of qubit manipulation. If the qubits aren't perfectly controlled, then errors can creep through that ...

A quantum computer works very differently. Because it uses as its bits tiny particles , either atoms or subatomic particles, these are subject to the laws of quantum physics. That means they can be in two states at the same time, so a quantum bit (or ...
