Argonne & Univ. of Chicago: Using Quantum Computers to Simulate Quantum Materials

Research study titled "Simulating the electronic structure of spin defects on quantum computers," by Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago. Abstract: "We present calculations of the ground and excited state energies of spin defects in solids carried out on a quantum computer, using a hybrid classical/quantum protocol. We focus on the negatively charged nitrogen vacancy c... » read more
