In the quantum information theory operates with qubits and N-qubits that can be express through coherent states. Density operator admits a representation in terms of coherent states formalism. Consequently, in this paper the notions of qubit and density operators are described in the framework of coherent states. We have expressed a qubit as a coherent state, and thus a sequence of qubits becomes the tensor product of the coherent states. For the ensembles of qubits, it could be used the density operator, in order to describe the informational content of the ensemble. The coherent states representation may play an important role in the quantum information theory and the use of this formalism is not only theoretical, but also, due to its applications, of some practical relevance.
