Multi-dimensional quantum systems for quantum computers
Quantum superposition is at the heart of quantum computing's exciting potential. In the superposition state, qubits simultaneously act as both 1 and 0. Unlike qubits, qudits can assume more dimensions. Increasing the number of entangled particles and dimensions can create more powerful quantum computers. The EU-funded InDiQE project is working on developing mathematical tools to study quantum entanglement of qudits in high dimensions. The new techniques will help researchers mathematically describe and quantify quantum entanglement in multipartite systems. Studying these multi-dimensional entangled states of complex quantum systems may point to a more practical way to build high-efficiency quantum computers.
