Abstract: This review is an introduction to solid state quantum computation and its applications for engineers with little or no quantum physics background. Some current classical limits of computation are briefly described, and examples of quantum algorithms are presented to show why quantum computation may be a way of overcoming these limitations. In this review, we have focused on one quantum computer proposal, the Kane proposal. It is a solid-state proposal in silicon doped with 31P atoms. However, significant technological advances will be required in smart electronics, nanotechnology and solid state devices if we are to see a useful solid state quantum computer.
