Abstract

We demonstrate that the [Yb(trensal)] molecule is a prototypical coupled electronic qubit-nuclear qudit system. The combination of noise-resilient nuclear degrees of freedom and large reduction of nutation time induced by electron-nuclear mixing enables coherent manipulation of this qudit by radio frequency pulses. Moreover, the multilevel structure of the qudit is exploited to encode and operate a qubit with embedded basic quantum error correction.
