Molecules as electron spin qubits

Electron spins confined to molecular compounds are promising candidates to base the elementary unit of a quantum computer: the qubit. The major advantage of molecular spin qubits stems from the ability to tailor their performance properties using synthetic chemistry and devise inexpensive new systems for experimental study. The article details the latest developments of the design and testing of new molecular spin qubits and how they are addressing the key challenges in the field of quantum computing.
