Advancing an alternative to quantum computing devices and applications through controlled management of chaos through entangled cupolets.
Advances in development of quantum computers are being hindered by the difficulty in controlling and managing extremely small-scale quantum effects that are necessary to achieve required data processing capabilities. The non-deterministic nature of quantum systems creates special challenges from a stability viewpoint. Chaotic systems, in contrast, are deterministic nonlinear systems that have the ability to develop complex behaviors, but are much more manageable than quantum systems. In a recent breakthrough, researchers at UNH have found that interacting chaotic systems can be driven into bound or entangled states that are stabilized, and can remain in the stable entangled state without external intervention. This technology has led to patented applications in computer memory and logic gates.
These new developments are an outgrowth of the discovery of Cupolets (Chaotic, Unstable, Periodic Orbit-LETS) in chaotic systems, which are a new class of waveforms arising from control of chaotic systems. These cupolets have previously been used in the generation of other waveforms for various applications such as secure communications, image processing and data compression. This family of inventions is the result of a novel technique to control and stabilize chaotic systems so they can be used in for many applications. The latest invention involves entanglement of cupolets so that they remain stabilized without further controls and in the entangled state, the cupolets can retain stored information.
