Clemson materials research in quantum computing may lead to computational speeds never seen before

CLEMSON — An emerging technology called quantum computing may soon be capable of solving incredibly complex problems that are beyond the capacity of today’s most powerful supercomputers. When this eventually happens, quantum computing will revolutionize a range of fields, including encryption and cybersecurity, drug discovery and weather forecasting.

Unlike conventional computers that store information in binary form (either 1 or 0), quantum computers exploit the strange properties of quantum physics to store information in multiple forms known as qubits.
