Unformatted text preview: computer has proved impossible. [1] and [2] both acknowledge that quantum logic gates have been made, but anything more than that has proved illusive. Quantum computers are based on qubits, who have two states which represent a binary on or off [2]. Even though the creation of a quantum computer has not occurred, there have been many advancements because of the research, including both theoretical and practical results [2]. Hopefully, one day a successful quantum computer will be made; the switch to quantum computing, should in theory, not be difficult because today's computers only operate on a machine language based on a binary representation which would have a one to one correspondence to the rotation of qubits.
