Q-CTRL Releases Professional-Grade ‘Quantum Control’ Tools to Improve Quantum Computing Hardware Performance

By IQT News posted 28 Feb 2020

(BusinessWire) Q-CTRL, a startup that applies the principles of control engineering to accelerate the development of the first useful quantum computers, today announced the Beta release of its professional-grade BOULDER OPAL software tools for the quantum computing market.
BOULDER OPAL is an advanced Python-based toolkit for developers and R&D teams using quantum control in their hardware or theoretical research. Technology agnostic and delivered via the cloud, BOULDER OPAL enables building and outputting new error-robust logic operations for even the most complex quantum circuits. The result for users is greater performance from today’s quantum computing hardware.
Outputs produced using BOULDER OPAL with state-of-the-art quantum computing hardware show improvements of 10 to 100 times across the key metrics of: error reduction, reduction of performance variability across devices, improvement of hardware stability over time, and reduction of error correlations. These metrics inform how well a quantum computer will perform now, and how likely developers will be able to build larger, more powerful systems in the future.
By leveraging professional software engineering and a powerful cloud-compute architecture, BOULDER OPAL also demonstrated approximately 10X improvement in time-to-solution in head-to-head testing against existing quantum control solutions where comparisons are possible.
