  Qubit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A qubit is not to be confused with a cubit, which is an ancient measure of length.
A pure qubit state is a linear quantum superposition of those two states.
When qubits are used in a quantum computation the computation must be carried out a number of times such that appropriate answer is obtained.

 Charge qubit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A charge qubit is formed by a tiny superconducting island (also known as a Cooper-pair box) coupled by a Josephson junction to a superconducting reservoir (see figure).
The state of the qubit is determined by the number of Cooper pairs which have tunneled across the junction.
The charge qubit is typically read-out with an extremely sensitive electrometer such as the radio-frequency single-electron transistor.

 Qubit
If a single quantum bit or qubit can be in 2 states at once then 3 qubits together can represent 8 numbers all at one.
In this scenario one qubit would be 1 and 0, and the three qubits would be 000, 001...
This qubit is given to both computers who want to communicate and is then used to decrypt all data passing between them.

 qubit - a Whatis.com definition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
A qubit is a quantum bit, the counterpart in quantum computing to the binary digit or bit of classical computing.
Just as a bit is the basic unit of information in a classical computer, a qubit is the basic unit of information in a quantum computer.
Each of these particles is known as a qubit; the nature and behavior of these particles (as expressed in quantum theory) form the basis of quantum computing.

 Hitachi claims Cambridge qubit silicon success
Qubits are also subject to the strange phenomenon of quantum entanglement.
Qubits have been made before in gallium arsenide but these have had very short coherence times of a couple of nanoseconds.
As qubits can be combined in a variety of two-dimensional circuits, as in conventional microprocessors, there is the possibility of scaling-up from one device to a large quantum circuit, which is Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory's next project.

 [No title]
When a qubit is in this state it can be thought of as existing in two universes, as a 0 in one universe and as a 1 in the other.
This is the problem of decoherence and is a stumbling block for quantum computers as the potential power of quantum computers depends on the quantum parallelism brought about by the coherent state [14].
An example of an implementation of the qubit is the 'quantum dot' which is basically a single electron trapped inside a cage of atoms [7].

 Turns of Phrase: Qubit
qubit (pronounced exactly the same was as the Old Testament measurement, the cubit) is a “quantum bit”;, the analogue at quantum dimensions of the ordinary computer’s 1 or 0, on or off, heads or tails binary digit or bit.
Unlike such digital representations, a qubit remains in an indeterminate state until it is observed, like a tossed coin that is still spinning.
It was shown recently that in theory a quantum computer could solve certain mathematical problems, such as factoring large numbers, much faster than conventional ones, and so could be used, for example, in codebreaking.

As the flux applied to the qubit was swept through the degeneracy point, $(n+1/2)\Phi_0$, we could resolve the change in qubit screening flux produced by the reversal of the qubit circulating current.
By applying microwave radiation to the qubit, we observed resonant excitation when the qubit level splitting matched the energy of the microwave photons, corresponding to a change in the qubit screening flux.
We performed coherent manipulation of the qubit state by applying microwave pulses of fixed amplitude and frequency, but variable width.

Alice then measures the Bell state of the entangled pair consisting of the qubit taken from the original Bell state pair and the unmeasured qubit she wishes to teleport to Bob, which is in the state
Alice measures the Bell state formed by her qubit and the unknown qubit and then tells Bob which transformation to make on his qubit to regenerate the original unmeasured qubit state.
This collapse of the state of Bob's qubit due to a measurement performed by Alice is an example of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox.

 Trivial Two-Qubit Example
A quantum version of the two bit example from the previous section consists of two physical qubits, where the errors randomly apply the identity or one of the Pauli operators to the first qubit.
Obviously, a one-qubit state can be stored in the second physical qubit without being affected by the errors.
In this case, the identification of syndrome and information-carrying subsystems is the obvious one associated with the two physical qubits.

 One Qubit Gates
One-qubit gates can be thought of as rotations of the Bloch sphere and can be implemented in NMR with electromagnetic pulses.
In general, the effect of a magnetic field on a nuclear spin is to cause a rotation around the direction of the field.
As a result, the qubit's state does not change unless RF pulses are applied.

 An introduction to Quantum Computing
This qubit property arises as a direct consequence of its adherence to the laws of quantum mechanics which differ radically from the laws of classical physics.
Similarly, a quantum computer manipulates qubits by executing a series of quantum gates, each a unitary transformation acting on a single qubit or pair of qubits.
The answer is primarily those errors that arise as a direct result of decoherence, or the tendency of a quantum computer to decay from a given quantum state into an incoherent state as it interacts, or entangles, with the state of the environment.

We introduce a basis for a 2-qubit; the first is the control qubit, the second is the target qubit; they form an entangled state.
We see that: when the control qubit (qubit 1) is zero, the target qubit is left unchanged, and when qubit 1 has value 1, then qubit 2 is flipped.
The main idea: A has 2 lines, a control qubit line on which it stores originally the state psi>, and a target qubit line on which is encoded one half of the entangled 2-qubit state.

 Quantum computing: Qubit power   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Memory in quantum computers is created by the manipulation of quantum bits.
In contrast to classical computers, where memory is a string of 'ones' and 'zeros', quantum bits (or qubits) can be in a superposition of many different states at once, so a quantum computer has the potential to be much more powerful than a classical computer.
The only physical system for which all the ingredients necessary for quantum computing have been demonstrated in the laboratory is ion trap technology, but it has not been clear whether the ion trap system is scalable in practice.

LONDON — A team at Hitachi’s Cambridge Laboratory at the University of Cambridge in England has developed a silicon device for quantum computing: a quantum-dot charge “qubit”.
Quantum computers make use of quantum bits (qubits), which can exist for a limited time as a superposition of two quantum states —; a mixture of both 0 and 1 simultaneously.
The Cambridge team has performed all the basic operations —’; initialization, manipulation, and measurement — using electrical gates for initialization and manipulation, and a single-electron transistor for measurement, Hitachi said.
