The NQCC is a sponsor of the mini-colloquium Integrating Quantum Computers in Condensed Matter Physics Simulations

Join us at the invited talk by Dr Phalgun Lolur, National Quantum Computing Centre

Talk title: Quantum Computing for Chemistry and Materials Science: Outlook and Opportunities

As we approach the limitations of conventional computing, quantum computing offers hope for an alternate and more efficient way of solving certain types of problems. From the very onset of the field, quantum computing is expected to provide an advantage in simulating many body physics of quantum systems. This is of interest to several problems within physics, chemistry, materials science, and beyond. Phalgun will introduce the National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) and its application discovery program SparQ, aimed at uncovering and developing early use-cases for quantum computing. You will hear how you can engage with the NQCC in driving research and innovation forward. He will also highlight the prospects of quantum computing for chemistry and materials science simulations, along with the limitations in the current noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computing era.

Followed by the session panel discussion participated by Dr Phalgun Lolur

Integrating Quantum Computers in Condensed Matter Physics Simulations

Quantum computers open a new paradigm for potentially exponential improvement in computational speed for certain tasks when compared to classical computers. Noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) computers are already available, and larger and noiseless quantum computers are expected within the next 10 years. This has sparked a large interest in quantum computing applications for condensed matter physics. The field of quantum physics calculations on quantum computers (QC) is less than 15 years old, yet it has experienced explosive growth in the last couple of years with thousands of new publications a year. This mini-colloquium will bring together experts from the quantum computing community with experts in condensed matter to give an overview of the field and of current developments, and to generate ideas for further quantum computing applications within condensed matter physics.
