Could we soon all have quantum computers on our desks? Scientists claim to have cracked the …

Qubits are the quantum equivalent of bits found in conventional computersThey can hold three different states at once instead of 1 or 0 found in bitsKnown as ‘superposition’ most qubits hold this state for microsecondsResearchers have created a new molecule that can maintain it for far longerBy Richard Gray for MailOnline Published: 13:22, 2 December 2015 | Updated: 13:34, 2 December 2015 The prospect of super-fast desktop quantum computers may be a step closer after scientists created a molecule that can function as a stable qubit.Qubits are the quantum computing equivalent of bits used in traditional computers, but they currently are only capable of holding information for tiny fractions of a second.Researchers have shown that a molecular complex of vanadium, carbon and sulphur may provide a solution to this problem.Scroll…
