qubit

- noun an elementary particle such as an electron or photon that can store data and
__perform__computational tasks within a quantum computerâ€™s processor and memory

- Abbreviation of quantum bit. An individual
__particle__utilized to store information. Particles, which obey the laws of quantum mechanics, can have their spin influenced for__storage__, and detected for__retrieval__. A single qubit can be used to represent a one, a zero, or both, with a coefficient representing the__probability__for each__state__. Two qubits can represent every two-bit__number__, which specifically are 00, 01, 10, and 11. Each additional qubit increases the number representation exponentially, at a rate of 2^{n}, whereis the number of qubits. For example, 50 qubits can represent every number between zero and beyond a*n*__quadrillion__. - synonym quantum bit
