We investigate quantum computing at the system level, analyzing the engineering challenges which must be overcome to build a functioning large-scale quantum computer. Technical challenges include the integration of millions of devices into one system, producing high-accuracy gates, extending quantum memory lifetimes, processing classical control information, and interfacing with a quantum network.
The Quantum Computing subgroup also studies the execution of quantum algorithms, including Shor's factoring algorithm and the simulation of quantum chemistry. For simulation, we are studying new implementations which significantly reduce execution time of the algorithm.
