Research team simulates super diffusion on a quantum computer

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

Trinity’s quantum physicists in collaboration with IBM Dublin have successfully simulated super diffusion in a system of interacting quantum particles on a quantum computer.

This is the first step in doing highly challenging quantum transport calculations on quantum hardware and, as the hardware improves over time, such work promises to shed new light in condensed matter physics and materials science.

The work is one of the first outputs of the TCD-IBM predoctoral scholarship programwhich was recently established where IBM hires Ph.D. students as employees while being co-supervised at Trinity. The paper was published recently in npj Quantum Information.
