The U.S. Department of Energy's (DoE) Office of Science has awarded two research teams, each led by a member of Oak Ridge National Laboratory's (ORNL) Quantum Information Science Group, more than $10 million over five years to assess the feasibility of quantum architectures in addressing big science problems and to develop algorithms that can harness the power of quantum computing systems.
The projects aim to work together to ensure synergy across DoE's quantum computing research spectrum and maximize the results.
One of the projects, "Methods and Interfaces for Quantum Acceleration of Scientific Applications," will be led by ORNL's Raphael Pooser, who will work with industry leaders to understand the potential of quantum architectures in solving major scientific challenges.
The other project, "Heterogeneous Digital-Analog Quantum Dynamics Simulation, will be led by ORNL's Pavel Lougovski, with the goal of developing quantum simulation algorithms for applications in condensed matter and nuclear physics.
