Russia making new type of universal quantum computer with multilevel quantum qudits instead of qubits

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Physicists from MIPT and the Russian Quantum Center have developed a method which is going to make it easier to create a universal quantum computer — they have discovered a way of using multilevel quantum systems (qudits), each one of which is able to work with multiple “conventional” quantum elements — qubits.

Professor Vladimir Man’ko, Scientific Supervisor of MIPT’s Laboratory of Quantum Information Theory and member of staff at the Lebedev Physical Institute, Aleksey Fedorov, a member of staff at the Russian Quantum Center, and his colleague Evgeny Kiktenko published the results of their studies of multilevel quantum systems in a series of papers in Physical Review A, Physics Letters A, and also Quantum Measurements and Quantum Metrology.
