QC 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.
