The primary goal of AQUA is to advance the deployment of quantum
technologies in the real world, principally by applying known
techniques from classical computer architecture, networking and
distributed systems to the problems of scalability in quantum systems.
This work will both bring new computational capabilities and help
ensure that the progress of information technology does not end when
the size of transistors can no longer be reduced.
- Devices: In conjunction
Yamamoto group at Stanford University, we are designing
semiconductor-based chips using quantum dots.
- Principles: We are searching for new principles in quantum
architecture and networking, as well as applications of known
- Tools: Proper analysis of new ideas in architecture and networks
requires software tools for compiling programs and optimizing their
mapping to particular systems, as well as physical simulation of
quantum devices and effects.
- Workloads: Although AQUA does not focus on the creation of new
quantum algorithms, we do work on how to implement known quantum
algorithms efficiently on realizable architectures. We also perform
the reverse analysis: to implement a given algorithm, how large and
how accurate a quantum system is required?
- Networks: Large systems must combine multiple devices into one
system that can compute collaboratively, as well as share
information; we are investigating both system-area and wide-area
In addition, we do a number of fun and educational projects:
Tokuda/Murai/Kusumoto/Nakamura/Takashio/Shigechika/Van Meter/Uehara/Mitsugi/Nakazawa Laboratories.
