Molecular Quantum Computation

VLSI will hit fundamental physical limits within two decades. Quantum mechanics is the one resource in our universe that is exponentially large, but has been untapped for computation. We've found that, paradoxically, it is possible to preserve coherence in a quantum computer while still providing external access by using the orientation of the nuclei of atoms in molecules in a liquid to store quantum information, and programming them with radio-frequency pulses.
