Path Breaking Study Reverses Time in Quantum Computer

9Lab simulation of time reversal

In nature though, the possibility of such an event happening is near impossible but in a lab, it could. The localized electron situation in a quantum computer was then simulated in a lab where the researchers tried the time reversal operation to make the electron revert back to the original state. As the simulation got bigger, the probability got more complex and difficult as the localization became less accurate.

10The amazing result with 85% success

The amazing thing was that when researchers used a two quantum bit setup to simulate the localization of the electron, the time reversal was successful in 85% cases. But in a three-bit setup, the success rate reduced to 50% due to increase of errors. But, even though researchers may have duplicated time reversal in a computer, it would be unlikely if the same principle could lead to creating a time machine.

11Will such probabilities be possible in the future?

Perhaps if that was ever possible, it would have to be made using a delorean the iconic car that was also used as the model for the time machine vehicle in the movie “back to the future”. One thing is sure feeling the researchers, is that the experiment could serve as a base for making more advanced quantum computers that would feature enhanced accuracy and precision in computing in the coming future. Who knows what one can expect?
