Uses photons!

The key experiment/phenomena that sets the basis for photonic quantum computing is the two photon interference experiment.
🔗
The physical representation of the information encoding is very easy to understand:
  • input: we choose to put or not photons into certain wires or no
  • interaction: two wires pass very nearby at some point, and photons travelling on either of them can jump to the other one and interact with the other photons
  • output: the probabilities that photos photons will go out through one wire or another

Video 151. Jeremy O'Brien: "Quantum Technologies" by GoogleTechTalks (2014) Source. This is a good introduction to a photonic quantum computer. Highly recommended.
