(InsideHPC) QC Ware has announced that the company was awarded a U.S. Department of Energy grant to use quantum computing to better understand complex material and chemical systems. Collaborating with SLAC, QC Ware will apply its expertise to develop hybrid classical-quantum algorithms. These algorithms will run on quantum computers and could dramatically improve the accuracy of photochemical simulations used to design new chemicals and materials.
The DoE grant to the collaborative project led by SLAC reinforces QC Ware’s leadership in developing groundbreaking methodologies and quantum algorithms for chemical simulations,” said Matt Johnson, CEO, QC Ware. “Only a few people in the world have done this. We greatly value our opportunity to make immediate contributions to this unprecedented QIS project, and look forward to the unfolding of its longer-term potential.”
