Abstract The prominent purpose of my project was to introduce the idea of using photons as qubits in quantum computers to increase effectiveness and efficiency. I believe quantum computing is the next huge technological breakthrough. If we are able to implement photons in quantum computers, we will be able to improve quantum computers and solve calculations that can help the world existentially, environmentally, and technologically.
