Quantum Fourier transform based information transmission system and method

Patent image
CCDC ARL

A method of data compression and transmission include splitting a wave function representative of an input data set into an arbitrarily oriented elliptical polarization state and a comparator wave function state, the comparator wave function state being transmitted to a detector. A quantum Fourier transform is performed on the arbitrarily oriented elliptical polarization state to yield a quantum computational product. A quantum Hadamard transform is performed on the quantum computational product to yield one of two possible quantum particle outputs. The input data set is reconstructed based upon the coincident arrival of the comparator wave function state and one of the two quantum particle outputs. A method is performed on either a quantum computer or a digital computer. An optical bench with appropriate electronics is particularly well suited to function as a quantum computer for the compression and transmission of data corresponding to sound.
