Quantum Computing and Quantum Information

Quantum Computing fosters the exceptional differences of Quantum Mechanics to perform computational tasks in a different way -- Sometimes, with greatly improved efficiency in regards to computational time, power consumption or security.

The following pages explain some of the basic concepts of this field. When it comes to quantum circuits, we use the language of OpenQasm, you kind find an introduction on how to use this language here: Learn about OpenQASM.

  1. The Quantum Bit
