Qubits are the heartbeat of quantum computers. Their hard-to-imagine properties are what gives quantum machines their awesome computational power. Superconducting devices, spinning atoms, polarized photons, quantum dots, and trapped ions are not futuristic video games. They are different qubit technologies.  Moreover, each qubit type has its peculiar advantages and disadvantages. Out of all the qubit […]
