Quantum computing: qubits
Qubits use properties of one of four types of quantum particles: photons, electrons, atoms and ions. Photons do not interact with each other very well but they travel easily from one place to another, which makes them appropriate for transmitting quantum information. Electrons, atoms and ions don't travel well but readily interact, which makes them appropriate for storing and processing quantum information.
