Abstract

Molecules are serious candidates for building hardware for quantum computers. They can encode quantum information onto electron or nuclear spins and some of them show important features as the scalability of the number of qubits and a universal set of quantum gates. In this paper we present our advances in the development of a classical simulation infrastructure for molecular Quantum Computing: starting from the definition of simplified models taking into account the main physical features of each analyzed molecule, quantum gates are defined over these models, thus permitting to take into account the real behavior of each technology during the simulation. An interface with a hardware-agnostic description language has been also developed. The knowledge of the behavior of real systems permits to optimize the design of quantum circuits at both physical and compilation levels. Elementary quantum algorithms have been simulated on three different molecular technologies by changing the physical parameters of polarization and manipulation and quantum circuit design strategies. Results confirm the dependency of the fidelity of the results on both levels, thus proving that the choice of optimal operating points and circuit optimization techniques as virtual-Z gates are fundamental for ensuring the execution of quantum circuits with negligible errors.
