Description:  This diagram shows seven quantum bits. Each qubit consists of an electric charge reservoir (yellow box), superconducting electrodes (green or blue forks), and tiny electrical barriers, or Josephson junctions (red dots). A tuned magnetic field opens and closes the flow of electricity between qubits, allowing researchers to link any two in the set.
