Beyond Qubits: Key Components for a Qutrit-Based Quantum Computer Demonstrated“In principle, an isolated black hole exhibits scrambling,” Siddiqi said, “but any experimental system also exhibits loss from decoherence. And despite the typically noisy, imperfect, and error-prone environment of quantum circuity, they found that their platform proved surprisingly resilient and robust. In the coin analogy, it’s like a coin that has the possibility of coming up as heads, tails, or in landing on its thin edge. Qutrits can have a value of zero, one, or two, holding all of these states in superposition. Siddiqi is director of Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Quantum Testbed, a faculty scientist in the Lab’s Computational Research and Materials Sciences divisions, and a professor of physics at UC Berkeley. Team led by Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley scientists builds a new type of quantum processor capable of information scrambling like that theorized within black holes. And by using a quantum property known as entanglement, it is possible to perform this reconstruction significantly more rapidly, as was shown in earlier work.
