New approach uses twisted quantum states to protect information
Quantum science has the potential to revolutionise modern technology, with more efficient computers, communication and sensing devices. However, quantum system development is complex because their building blocks, consisting of only a few atoms, are so small that environmental stimuli render them unstable and often unusable. The EU-funded QUANTWIST project will investigate effects at the quantum level that are more stable when faced with environmental stimuli and can thus protect stored information. To this end, researchers will twist coupled elemental quantum systems to form a global, quantum state that will be more resilient to environmental perturbations. Quantum twists could serve as a topological source of entanglement, offering a noise-protection mechanism for future quantum devices.
