Definition of quantum computing in US English:

quantum computing


  • See quantum computer

    • ‘Historically, the people doing quantum optics and ion traps were closer to the people doing quantum computing, so they were the first to investigate quantum computing.’
    • ‘The basic idea of quantum computing is to store data in the nuclei of atoms by altering their orientation, thereby producing a binary scheme.’
    • ‘As well as possible applications in quantum computing, tunable Josephson junctions could be used to sense tiny variations in magnetic fields.’
    • ‘The ability to reliably manipulate quantum information would enable quantum computing and other feats of information processing and communication that cannot be duplicated in the classical world.’
    • ‘The results could have applications in quantum computing, where organized arrays of electrons might someday be used to store and process information.’
