Next step in creation of a quantum computer

A team of researchers have determined a new way to distinguish quantum bits in the eventual creation of a quantum computer to solve complex problems.

The demonstration made use of silicon, already widespread in microelectronics, and worked in the precision of nanometres to control the spin of individual electrons.

Quantum computers can store more information than regular computers by using the spin or magnetic orientation of an electron, which allows for more data.
