We are investigating inductive coupling optimization schemes and quantization effects for microscopic metal rings as a possible basis for a quantum bit (qbit). Faraday induction is proposed to provide electromagnetic coupling between the rings, therefore acting as an information carrier. Quantizing this information will produce distinguishable ring states that can be denoted by |0〉 and |1〉, representing the logic states of the qbit. We have set up simulation case studies with the aim of reducing signal loss between the rings. Further, different quantization mechanisms are investigated analytically. A combination of the two concepts can in theory be used to design qbits, consisting of metal rings with I/O facilities.
