Modular Architectures for Quantum Systems
JQI and QuICS
As we seek to scale up small quantum devices into general-purpose quantum computers, we will need to develop also the tools for designing large-scale architectures. In this talk I will discuss some of the challenges involved in trying to evaluate different potential architectures and introduce a family of graphs called hierarchies which seem like excellent candidates. I will then describe the process of benchmarking quantum architectures by using entanglement measures to define the capability of the network to create large, highly-entangled states, describing how this can be done in both unitary and non-unitary cases.
