Quantum mechanical computers with single atom and photon fields

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The physical foundation of a computer, specifically, the thermodynamic and quantum mechanical limits, has been an interesting theoretical subject for many years. The uncertainty relation between information and energy, exemplified by Maxwell’s demon1), suggests that there exists a fundamental limit on minimum energy cost per unit of information processing. The most important development in this field in the last ten years has been a reversible logic proposed by Fredkin and Toffoh2).
