Quantum information

Quantum information is problem solving and data processing using a quantum system as the information carrier, rather than binary ‘1’s and ‘0’s used in conventional computation. Quantum information systems could be able to transmit data that is fundamentally secure and solve problems that are beyond the power of modern computers.
