Experts from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences managed to take another leap in experimenting with complex quantum systems.
Physicists all over the world are trying to increase the number of two dimensional systems that are called qubits, researchers around Anton Zeilinger are breaking new ground.
They pursue the idea of using more complex quantum systems such as qubits in order to be able to increase the data capacity with the same number of particles. The developed tech could enable sometime in the future the teleportation of complex quantum systems.
The results of their work called “Experimental Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger Entanglement Beyond QuBits” have been published recently in the journal Nature Photonics.
Google and IBM are searching for ways of producing an increasing number of entangled Qubits
Qubits are similar to bits in conventional computers, and they’re the smallest unit of data in quantum systems.
Tech giants such as Google and IBM are competing with research institutes all over the world to produce an enhanced number of entangled Qubits. The motivation is to develop a functioning quantum computer.
A group of experts at the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences took a new path to increase the information capacity of complex quantum systems.
What they’re doing is that instead of only increasing the number of particles that are involved in the process, the overall complexity of each system is increased.
“The special thing about our experiment is that for the first time it entangles three photons beyond the conventional two-dimensional nature,” said Manuel Erhard, first author of the study.
The results of this study could reportedly have a massive impact on future tech such as quantum teleportation.
Erhard believes that the methods and technologies that they were able to develop are essential for quantum communication networks. You can check out the study here.
Rada attended the courses in the Faculty of Letters, Romanian-English section, and finished the Faculty of Theatre and Television, Theatrical Journalism section, both within the framework of Babeş-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca. Up till now, she reviewed books, movies, and theatre-plays, enjoying subjects from the cultural niche. Her experience in writing also intersects the IT niche, given the fact that she worked as a content editor for firms that produce software for mobile devices. She is collaborating with online advertising agencies, writing articles for several websites and blogs.
