Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Berkeley Lab boasts end-to-end capabilities in QIS theory, design, and development: engineers and materials scientists are exploring ways to fabricate quantum control systems, quantum processors and sensors, and computer scientists and mathematicians are developing algorithms, programming tools, and error-mitigation strategies. Lab scientists are developing quantum computing algorithms for chemistry research and other fields.
Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Quantum Testbed (AQT) is a collaborative research facility for the advancement of quantum computation based on superconducting circuits. It focuses on developing and implementing quantum algorithms co-designed for noisy, intermediate scale quantum hardware to solve computational problems relevant to the scientific computing mission of the Department of Energy. Applications include optimization, materials science and cosmology. AQT will bridge a key gap between highly exploratory academic research efforts and highly specialized instances of commercially available, cloud-based and physical resources. Overall facility vision revolves around a flexible architecture for deploying state-of-the-art superconducting quantum technology, including processors as well as control systems & software.
In addition, the diverse resources of the Molecular Foundry, Advanced Light Source, NERSC high-performance computing, and ESnet high-speed network facilities can be brought to bear to advance QIS research.
Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science.
