Notified quantum physicist Anton Zeilinger has recently been quoted as saying “I personally believe that, most notably, all communication will be quantum.” China has already taken steps to make a quantum of internet reality, and it also has the United States. Unfortunately, quantum computation has been slow, with various technical giants (including IBM and Google) struggling to add more and more qubits to their machines. However, a new study has found that the key to creating more powerful quantum computers may not add more qubits-it may be more complex qubits.
Qubits is as normal computer bits, but with an additional possible state that is 0 and 1
simultaneously. Since most quantum computers are mounted from 50-75 kbit maximum, the overall capacity of the system is quite low. In addition, these qubits are only involved in two dimensions, which further limits the amount of information they can handle. Research from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences decided to experiment with new ways to arrange and detain qubits and discovered that it was possible to imprison three particles in three dimensions. After some difficulties in preparing the experiment, the team could achieve its goal.
“The special thing about our experiment is that it triggers for the first time three photons in addition to the conventional two-dimensional nature,” says Manuel Erhard, one of the authors of the study. What comes next can not only change the face of quantum counting, but quantum telecommunications. According to Anton Zeilinger himself, as an author of the study, “I think the methods and techniques we developed in this publication allow us to teleport a higher proportion of the total quantum information of a single photon, which may be important for quantitative communication networks. “
