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.
