A new type of computer based on the theory of quantum mechanics, a quantum computer, is currently in development by researchers around the globe. The theory of quantum mechanics describes nature at the atomic and subatomic level. Quantum technology has the potential to build powerful tools that process information using the properties of atoms, photons, and electrons. These quantum computers could also address challenges of much greater complexity than what today's computers can solve, and help further advancements in science, technology, medicine, and more.
With countries spending billions of dollars, the race for who can produce the first practical, commercialized quantum computer is on. There are currently several approaches to build this sort of computer, and this all begins with creating and initializing quantum bits, also known as qubits.
