Abstract

Recently, quantum computing has gained attention as a possible means of greatly increasing the speed of certain calculations when compared with traditional, binary computing. A key part of many quantum computing algorithms is the performance of a Fourier transform. Inspired by ideas from electromagnetics and acoustics, we propose a quantum waveguide array generator that can perform such operations quickly but with but classical approach that uses the analog properties of waves and rather than the qubit concept.
