TOPIC: Quantum information processing with cold Fermi gases in the fast
It is widely recognized that the main difficulty in designing devices
which could process information using quantum states is related to the
decoherence of local excitations about a ground state. A solution to this
problem was proposed by Kitaev, relying on (non-local) topological
excitations, carrying fractional electronic charge. However, a practical
implementation of this proposal using specific Landau levels in fractional
quantum Hall systems has proven elusive. We propose a different physical
system (based on cold Fermi atoms) where non-abelian anyonic excitations
can be realized and manipulated, and whose implementation might be
achieved with the current technology.
