The realization of large scale quantum computing, involving multitudes of qubits is still a technological challenge, beyond the scope of this proposal.
Washington, July 4 ( ANI ): It's a challenge that's long been one of the holy grails of quantum computing: how to create the key building blocks known as quantum bits, or qubits, that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature.
Because these qubits share a quantum connection, they can influence one another.

As qubits are added to a quantum computer its ability to perform calculations increases, opening the way to solving problems that are currently impossible for even the world's largest supercomputers.
A quantum computer instead uses quantum bits, or qubits.
Because experiments disagree, physicists aren't sure how many ways four qubits can be entangled.
As opposed to traditional computer bits, which can encode distinctly either a one or a zero, qubits can encode a one and a zero at the same time.
Qubits exist in a limbo of uncertainty, simultaneously 1 and 0.
Qubits - or quantum bits - can hold a value of '1' or '0' as well as both values at the same time.
These ions, trapped by an electromagnetic field on a gold-plated alumina chip, formed the quantum bits, or qubits, analogous to the bits in regular computers represented by Os and 1s.
All three particles are used as quantum bits (qubits), where one ion represents the system qubit and the other two ions auxiliary qubits.
