New Type of Qubit

New Type of Qubit

More quantum computing discovery, this time from Harvard. Keeping it simple to understand how researchers created a molecule, see image, below. The molecule is considered a new type of qubit. The practical application to quantum information processing envisioned is heightened device efficiency. April 15, 2018.

A single molecule has been produced in an optical tweezer by a controlled reaction between a single sodium and single cesium atom. Inside a glass cell vacuum apparatus, a laser-cooled cloud of sodium atoms is suspended, allowing a microscope to view the fluorescence from individual atoms trapped side-by-side.
