As device structures get smaller quantum mechanical effects predominate. About twenty years ago it was shown that it was possible to redesign devices so that they could still carry out the samefunctions. Recently it has been shown that the processing speed of computers based on quantum mechanics is indeed far superior to their classical counterparts for some important applications. This paper introduces quantum mechanics and shows how this can be used for computation.
