Martin Ringbauer: Title: High-dimensional Quantum Information Processing
Quantum computers promise to revolutionize information processing in the 21st century. Yet, today's quantum computers almost entirely generalize the binary logic of classical computers. However, the quantum systems underlying this technology are not binary. These systems naturally occupy high-dimensional Hilbert spaces and must be artificially constrained to a two-level subspace. The goal of this project is to move beyond this restrictive paradigm and unlock the potential of native high-dimensional quantum information processing in a state-of-the-art ion-trap quantum computer.
