  Quantum computer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a classical (or conventional) computer, the amount of data is measured by bits; in a quantum computer, it is measured by qubits.
Quantum computers are different from classical computers such as DNA computers and computers based on transistors, even though these may ultimately use some kind of quantum mechanical effect (for example covalent bonds).
Qubits for a quantum computer can be implemented using particles with two spin states: "up" and "down"; in fact any system, possessing an observable quantity A which is conserved under time evolution and such that A has at least two discrete and sufficiently spaced consecutive eigenvalues, is a suitable candidate for implementing a qubit.

A quantum computer is a device that computes using superpositions of quantum states.
Quantum computers are different from classical computers such as some quantum dot computers[?], DNA computers[?], and computers based on transistors, even though all of these use quantum mechanical effects other than state superpositions.
The existence of quantum computers doesn't disprove the Church-Turing thesis.

 The Qubit and Quantum Computing: The Next Wave
Quantum computing has its roots in classical computers, which were developed in the middle of the 20th century and have evolved considerably since.
While classical computers of the mid 20th century utilized as their basic unit of information the "bit", which could represent at any one time either "0" or "1", a quantum bit, or "qubit", would harness the power of quantum mechanics in order to represent "0", "1", or a superposition of both.
The first quantum computer consisted of two qubits and was demonstrated by a team of researchers led by Isaac Chuang at the University of California-Berkeley in 1998.

 Silicon chips set to go atomic TRN 072402
Prototype quantum computers, which use atoms or subatomic particles to carry out computations, are laboratory oddities that run gamut from lasers fired into special crystals to test tubes of liquid placed in the same type of machine that produces medical MRIs.
Quantum computers could be fantastically fast at solving large problems like cracking secret codes, but they remain largely theoretical, which is why researchers are trying different approaches to see if it's possible to make large, practical computers that use the states of subatomic particles to store and process information.
Researchers generally agree that liquid NMR quantum computers, however, cannot be made larger than 10 qubits because the strength of the radio signals from the qubits decreases exponentially compared to the noise with each additional qubit.

 Teleport lifts quantum computing TRN 071404
A leading candidate architecture for quantum computing -- trapped ions -- has received a significant boost with a pair of teleportation experiments that show is possible to reliably and readily shuttle information within a quantum computer.
The method allows quantum bits, or qubits, to be stored before and after teleportation so that quantum computers can process information, move it to a different part of the computer and then process it further.
Practical applications for full quantum computers that have several hundred thousand qubits are one or two decades away, but specialized applications that require only a few qubits are two to five years away, and applications that require 10 to 20 qubits are five to ten years away, said Blatt.

That information is described by state in a 2-level quantum mechanical system, whose two basic states are conventionally labeled 0 \rangle and 1 \rangle (pronounced: ket 0 and ket 1).
Such "quantum parallelism" is one of the keys to the potential power of quantum computation.
Similarly, a unit of quantum information in a 3-level quantum system is called a qutrit, by analogy with the unit of classical information trit.
