Can nuclear qubits point the way?

Researchers from the London Centre for Nanotechnology and the US have published an article in Physical Review Letters (" Efficient Dynamic Nuclear Polarization at High Magnetic Fields") that describes a technique for making molecules a thousand times more useful for quantum computing.

Qubits might very well be the vehicle for the next revolution in computing. Silicon technology has made computers faster and faster, but now it seems that the limits of what is possible with ones and zeros are being reached. One of the answers could be the transition from the "good-old" bit to the flashy qubit.
