Extending the reach of today's noisy quantum computers
Superconducting quantum processors have recently made significant improvements in both quality and scale. Concurrent progress in error mitigation techniques has now enabled the application of these to quantum circuits at scales where exact, brute-force classical solutions are not always accessible. In this talk, I will first discuss experimental challenges for large fixed-frequency superconducting processors, and present strategies to tailor the noise for error mitigation. I will then discuss our experimental implementations of zero noise extrapolation on a 127-qubit processor for simulations of spin-model dynamics.
