How to make a qubit | Quantum Computing Weekly #2

How to make a qubit | Quantum Computing Weekly #2
By Jesper Thomschutz • Issue #2 • View online
👋 Hi everyone and welcome to the second issue of Quantum Computing Weekly.
In this issue we’ll be covering a quick run through of the history of quantum computing, talk about how qubits are implemented in real life as well as recent news and development in the industry. There’s especially interesting news regarding how QC can be commercialized and fast-tracked to a wider audience.

Tiny Fact of the week
In the previous issue we introduced the concept of qubit - but how do you actually create a qubit in reality? There are a handful of ways currently being used today. One popular method is to use the spin of an electron (down/low-energy or up/high-energy), but there are other methods as well, such as the polarization of a single photon (as an example: 1 for vertical or 0 for horizontal).

👋 Hi folks and welcome to Quantum Computing Weekly!

This is a newsletter about Qubits, Quantum Logic Gates, occasional mandatory cat jokes, and more.

First off, let me get this out of the way: I'm not a quantum computing expert - not a Ph.D. in anything - just a humble legacy-computer programmer with a passion to learn more about the world of quantum computing.

Join me on my journey with this newsletter as I share news, articles, videos, and anything else I come across that I think is interesting while learning about quantum computers.
