Quantum computers get in tune

The quantum computer will transform information technology, providing vastly increased computational power while side-stepping the technical hurdles of miniaturization by embodying computer logic in a completely new architecture. The only problem is that no one knows how to make one. Now two researchers have a new proposal for performing quantum computation in the solid state, which involves using nanoscale meachnical resonators to couple the quantum bits (qubits) of such a device.
