Quantum Router for Qutrit Networks
- 70 Downloads
Networks of quantum circuits or, more generally, networks transmitting quantum information will need, just like classical networks (e.g. internet), a mechanism for directing data to adequate nodes. Routing, understood as packet switching, is one of the most important processes in classical networks. The issue of routing is also present in quantum networks and an appropriate construction of a quantum router is required to transfer data to specific points in the network. We describe an implementation of a router for qutrits in this chapter. The router is four-qutrit quantum circuit (with one controlling unit). The efficiency and the accuracy of router’s work is tested by the Fidelity measure. The circuit’s dynamics is expressed by a Hamiltonian where the role of generalized Pauli operators is played by the Gell-Mann operators.
