Team led by Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley scientists builds a new type of quantum processor capable of information scrambling like that theorized within black holes

-By Glenn Roberts Jr.

A team led by physicists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley has successfully observed the scrambling of quantum information, which is thought to underlie the behavior of black holes, using qutrits: information-storing quantum units that can represent three separate states at the same time. Their efforts also pave the way for building a quantum information processor based upon qutrits.
