Quantum computing is a new field in the world of computing. Few quantum computers have been made yet, but in common circumstances, there are many challenges regarding their use.
Despite this, the use of quantum computing has started in experimentation and research. Recently, like one such experiment, quantum computing was used extensively in the field of chemistry, in which the researchers of Google were successful.
Google has successfully completed the largest chemical simulation on a quantum computer. This is considered to be an achievement that will open many new dimensions in the field of chemistry. It is going to benefit many industries.
In a research published in the journal Science, the Google team wrote, "Essentially we confirm that the algorithm is developed for the quantum computers available for now is the accuracy in the direction of real simulations for the quantum chemical system can provide. "
This experiment was carried out on the Sikamor processor which was recently used for quantum supremacy. Google's chief executive Sundar Pichai said in his tweet, "Glad that Google's team has achieved new breakthrough in quantum chemistry which is the largest quantum calculation ever in chemistry and for the first time in the direction of chemical reaction model Quantum computers have been used for"
Simulation of Chemistry with Quantum Algorithm: The AI Quantum team of Google directly simulated a chemistry method through a quantum algorithm.
For this, It used a special noise robotic variable quantum eigensolver (VQE). This entire calculation was focused on the approximation of a real chemistry system named Hartree-Fock.
Much larger than previous calculations, the most important thing about this entire calculation was that it was twice as large as the previous large calculation done on a quantum computer and it used at least 10 times more quantum gate operation. Hatreefok is a method of approximation in Hartree-Fock proximetric dynamics and chemistry that determines the energy of the Wave Function and the quantum mani body system in steady-state.
This can be considered as a method of calculation at the electron level that cannot be done experimentally and for these, the use of the Hatrifok method is a measure.
Today's quantum computers are so powerful that in many calculations one can easily surpass the traditional computer. At the moment it is still a question whether such devices can accelerate the simulation technology of current quantum chemistry or not. Google researchers have released the code for their experiment.
Researchers hope that this experiment will contribute to the faster completion of chemical calculations on quantum processors. Quantum computing uses quanta phenomena for computation. Due to this, there are many models, that is, they are calculated in many ways.
