Continuing the journey to frictionless quantum software: Qiskit Chemistry module & Gradients framework

We’ve taken another important step on our path towards frictionless quantum computing: A new release of Qiskit with a completely overhauled Qiskit Chemistry module, as well as a brand new Qiskit Gradients framework. Both enhancements pave the way for quantum application software that serves the needs of domain experts and quantum algorithm researchers.

Unlocking the Potential of Today’s Noisy Quantum Computers for OLED Applications

Scientists at Mitsubishi Chemical, a member of the IBM Q Hub at Keio University in Japan, reached out to our team about experimenting with new approaches to error mitigation and novel quantum algorithms to address these very challenges. In the new arXiv preprint, “Applications of Quantum Computing for Investigations of Electronic Transitions in Phenylsulfonyl-carbazole TADF Emitters,” we – along with collaborators at Keio University and JSR - describe quantum computations of the “excited states,” or high energy states, of industrial chemical compounds that could potentially be used in the fabrication of efficient organic light emitting diode (OLED) devices.

IBM’s Roadmap For Scaling Quantum Technology

Today, we are announcing the roadmap that we think will take us from the noisy, small-scale devices of today to the million-plus qubit devices of the future. We are currently developing a suite of increasingly larger and better chips, with a 1,000-qubit-plus chip, called IBM Quantum Condor, targeted for the end of 2023.

Hardware-aware approach for fault-tolerant quantum computation

Our article “Topological and subsystem codes on low-degree graphs with flag qubits” [1], published in Physical Review X, takes a bottom-up approach to quantum error correcting codes that are adapted to a heavy-hexagon lattice – a topology we implement in our latest 65-qubit Hummingbird (r2) chip, available to IBM Q Network users in the Manhattan-named system.
