In this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project, SC Solutions, teaming with Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), will demonstrate the feasibility of a scalable Quantum Computing Validation & Verification (QCVV) tool that will allow quantum computing researchers to rapidly and conveniently test and benchmark their quantum computing systems. While several QCVV techniques have been developed and tools have been implemented, their use has been very limited because of the high level of domain expertise required for their efficient use. Meanwhile, the need for QCVV tools is increasing with increasing complexity and availability of multi-qubit systems. Sandia has developed, pyGSTi, a software package to perform many QCVV protocols for full characterization of quantum logic gates on qubits. The Phase I goal for the SC-SNL team is to design a flexible and friendly user-interface with the ultimate goal (in Phase II) of SC developing a commercial software product for potential users in industry and academia.
