Study of electron movement on helium may impact the future of quantum computing

The future of quantum computing is a hot topic not only for experts but also in many commercial and governmental agencies. Rather than processing and storing information as bits in transistors or memories, which limit information to the binary ‘1’ or ‘0’, quantum computers would instead use quantum systems, such as atoms, ions, or electrons, as ‘qubits’ to process and store “quantum information” in, which can be in an infinite number of combinations of ‘1 and 0’.
