#407 Here comes "quantum"

Quantum computing was alluded to in the blog #402 posted on 3/31/19. In the context of the alternative transistor solutions considered in the last few entries, there is a need to mention quantum transistor. With quantum computing we are venturing beyond a realm of the binary system and conventional computers. The device used to carry out quantum computing operations is referred to as quantum transistor in spite of the fact that its operation is based on the entirely different principles than the operation of the conventional field-effect transistor for instance. What these two types of drastically different in terms of principles of operation transistors have in common, is the fact that both are constructed using primarily semiconductor materials, and fabricated using methods which rely heavily on semiconductor nanotechnology
