Accurate and efficient ab initio Quantum Chemistry calculations on current and near-term noisy intermediate-scale Quantum Computers for relevant chemical problems

Project description

Exploiting current and near-term quantum computers for quantum chemistry problems

The term noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) was proposed a few years ago. It refers to devices with an intermediate number of qubits (50 to a few hundred) whose noisy quantum gates prevent fault tolerance being achieved, limiting the size of quantum circuits that can reliably execute computations. These are a step on the path to fully fault-tolerant quantum computing with millions of qubits. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the QC-SQUARED project will show that quantum chemistry calculations can benefit from this NISQ hardware relative to classical computing. The team will develop methods and algorithms that enable the benefits, paving the way for exploitation of already-existing NISQ technologies.
