Quantum Computing Reaches For True Power

Quantum computers are computers based on quantum mechanics, the science of atomic structure and function. It's an experimental method of computing incorporating quantum theory and the uncertainty principle.

Quantum computers would allow a bit to store a value of 0 and 1 simultaneously. They could pursue multiple lines of inquiry simultaneously, with the final output dependent on the interference pattern generated by the various calculations.

Recent progress has renewed enthusiasm for finding avenues to build significantly more powerful quantum computers. Laboratory efforts in the United States and in Europe are under way using a number of technologies.
