Quantum Computer (Computer technology uses a series of on/off switches or
bits. A quantum computer is made up of quantum on/off switches or qubits. Thus, a
quantum computer can do an arbitrary reversible classical computation on all the numbers
simultaneously, and also has some ability to produce interference, constructive or
destructive, between various different numbers. The problem with QCs technology is the
loss of quantum coherence. By using a quantum error-correcting code data may be
protected even when the individual qubits in the computer decohere. Source:
