Quantum computer

Quantum computer. Superconducting magnet housing a liquid solution of a chemical that forms a 5-bit (or 5-qubit) quantum computer. The computer uses NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) techniques. The chemical was designed with its molecule having 5 linearly-coupled nuclear spins. These 5 spins (a magnetic quantum property) form the 5 bits of the quantum computer. The spins are manipulated using radio-frequency pulses and the effects monitored using this superconducting magnet. This quantum computer has been used to solve mathematical problems. The technology has been developed by Professor Steffen Glaser and his group at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany
