Submission + - Researchers create silicon-based quantum bit (cio.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia have created the world’s first working quantum bit based on a single atom in silicon. The research team was able to both read and write information using the spin, or magnetic orientation, of an electron bound to a single phosphorous atom embedded in a silicon chip. In February, UNSW researchers revealed they had successfully created a single-atom transistor using a single phosphorous atom in a silicon crystal."
