Title: A chemical path to quantum information

Abstract

The second quantum revolution is rapidly transforming fields like structural biology, cryptography, and condensed matter physics. The qubit is the core quantum unit, which has an infinite number of possible configurations through the superposition of its quantum states. This quantum property provides a unique approach for solving problems in computing, sensing, and metrology. Creating and manipulating qubits is a grand challenge, leading to a plethora of viable approaches. Spinbased molecular qubits are promising because they unify atomic scale spatial precision with structural customization for systems integration. Lombardi et al. exemplify this approach by constructing an electronic spin-based molecular qubit from a carefully engineered state in nanoscale graphene, providing an elegant example of atomic control over qubit design.
