The processing power required by consumers and businesses is rapidly growing. Eventually computers will need to develop new ways of storing data in order to keep up. In 1965, Gordon Moore proposed Moore’s Law, which stated the number of transistors on a microprocessor would double every 2 years (this was later changed to 18 months). At this rate, by the year 2030 the circuits on a microprocessor will need to be measured on an atomic scale. The next logical step is quantum computers, in which computers use atoms and molecules to store data. Such quantum computers have the potential to perform certain calculations significantly faster than any silicon-chip-based computer. So, what is a quantum computer and will they be available any time soon?
