N2 - A common model of quantum computing is the gate model with binary basis states. Here, we consider the gate model of quantum computing with a non-binary radix resulting in more than two basis states to represent a quantum digit, or qudit. Quantum entanglement is an important phenomenon that is a critical component of quantum computation and communications algorithms. The generation and use of entanglement among radix-2 qubits is well-known and used often in quantum computing algorithms. Quantum entanglement exists in higher-radix systems as well although little is written regarding the generation of higher-radix entangled states. We provide background describing the feasibility of multiple-valued logic quantum systems and describe a new systematic method for generating maximally entangled states in quantum systems of dimension greater than two. This method is implemented in a synthesis algorithm that is described. Experimental results are included that demonstrate the transformations needed to create specific forms of maximally entangled quantum states.
