How to get good results from noisy quantum processors
Dr. Kevin J. Sung
New York, NY
Noisy intermediate-scale quantum processors are available today and are being used by researchers to explore the potential applications of quantum computers. Due to the noise in these current devices, getting good results from them is not always straightforward. In this talk, I will discuss practical aspects of running experiments on these devices, including error suppression and mitigation techniques, with a focus on IBM's superconducting qubit hardware. To illustrate the concepts, I will present a recent experiment in which we prepared and measured eigenstates of the Kitaev chain Hamiltonian.
