While a variety of quantum systems exist today, many are unable to scale to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. Explaining the real-world obstacles of building a quantum system that scales, this post explores how Microsoft addresses these challenges through a topological qubit….Read more

Design automation and design space exploration for quantum computers 

1 min read

  A major hurdle for quantum algorithms for linear systems of equations, and for quantum simulation algorithms, is the difficulty to find simple circuits for arithmetic. Prior approaches typically led to a large overhead in terms of quantum memory, required operations, or implementation error. By leveraging recent advances in reversible logic synthesis, Martin Roetteler and…Read more
