The basic unit of information in a quantum computer is the quantum bit. It shares some features with the familiar “classical” bit, but it also has some very special properties, unique to the quantum world, such as the ability to be in a superposition of 0 and 1. In Quantum Computing Concepts, Professor Andrea Morello of UNSW Australia explains the basic properties and features of quantum bits, before showing how they are put to use in quantum computers.
