Abstract

The world at the size of individual atoms obeys very different laws of physics from those we are used to in the everyday world around us. Quantum mechanics rules, allowing atoms to be, in some sense, in more than one place at a time. Researchers all over the world are working to build \"quantum computers\" whose memories manipulate an inherently new type of information, \"quantum information.\" Quantum computers have capabilities impossible for a regular computer, no matter how advanced it may be, including the ability to run new kinds of computer programs capable of rapidly solving certain problems, and to make new highly secure codes for secret communication.
