Quantum Computer Architecture Lab

Quantum Accelerator system stack

Welcome to the Quantum Computer Architecture Lab at Delft University of Technology. We belong to QuTech and the Quantum & Computer Engineering department of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.

Our group focuses on the definition and implementation of a full-stack for a quantum accelerator as shown in the Figure. This layered stack defines the research roadmap and layers that need to be developed when building a quantum accelerator, going from a high-level description of a quantum algorithm to the actual operations on the quantum processor. We work on quantum programming languages (OpenQL and QASM), compilers and runtime support, quantum instruction set architecture (QISA), microarchitecture, quantum error correction (QEC) and mapping of quantum algorithms.

We closely collaborate with our experimental colleagues at QuTech working on different quantum technologies such as superconducting qubits and spin qubits. We also look at scalability, assuming hundreds or even thousands of qubits.
