Quantum Computing with Zero Spin Atoms?

  1. Dec 31, 2014 #1

    Is it possible to build a qubit from an atom with a nuclear spin of zero (ie. 16O, 12C, 32S)? Would it depend on electron spin instead?

    A partial list of degrees of freedom that have been actually used to encode qubits can be found on Wikipedia.
