In the December 6 issue of the journal Nature scientists report that for
the first time they have been able to entangle 2 molecules, in this case
calcium monofluoride (CaF). This could have important practical
implications in building a quantum computer because molecules have more
degrees of freedom than atoms do, especially if they're polar (an unequal
distribution of electrical charge) as CaF is. Molecules can vibrate and
rotate in many ways and so they can encode many more Qubits than atoms can.
