Quantum computing: qubits

Quantum bits, or qubits, are the quantum equivalent of the transistors that make up today’s computers. In order to carry out the logic of computing, there must be some way to represent the 1s and 0s of computer information. The many candidate qubits all have one thing in common - the ability to switch from one state to a second state. These states are used to represent binary information.
