PFCQC: STAQ: Software-Tailored Architecture for Quantum co-design

Quantum computing has the potential to provide a significant advantage over classical computing in terms of algorithmic complexity. The STAQ project is focused on demonstrating such an advantage on an ion trap quantum hardware platform developed at Duke with 64 or more qubits. This requires a co-design between hardware and software to be successful, which Duke University has been developing. NCSU complements these efforts, potentially leading to earlier demonstration of quantum advantage, by creating a transpiler to translate Qiskit programs to run on STAQ devices, assess benefits of creating complex native gates, and modeling the reliability of STAQ ion trap quantum computers.
