    Traditional computers are binary digital electronic devices based on transistors. They store information encoded in the form of binary digits each of which could be either 0 or 1. Quantum computers, in contrast, use quantum bits or qubits to store information either as 0, 1 or even both at the same time. Quantum mechanical phenomenons such as entanglement and tunnelling allow these quantum computers to handle a large number of states at the same time. Quantum computers are probabilistic rather...
