One main goal of PASQuanS is the development of applications relevant to industry and other fields of science, and connections to an end-user base.
PASQuanS builds on the most advanced platforms based on atoms and ions to develop the next generation of fully programmable quantum simulators. By this means, it is possible to demonstrate the practical quantum advantage and solve problems relevant for academia and industry. Potential applications are in material science, quantum chemistry, high-energy physics and optimization problems.
This is why we develop and facilitate a forum of prospective end-users for quantum simulation in the frame of the project. There is an engagement with end-user partners which are currently Airbus, Bosch, EDF, Siemens and Total. We want to identify potential use-cases and map problems onto our hardware platforms to build a base of end users for the identification of industry-relevant problems.
Five partners of the PASQuanS consortium are industrial partners. The collaborations with these technology partners aim to deliver controlled, programmable, large-scale platforms and to develop architecture and software control techniques.
This collaboration of Academia and Industry will provide programmable, scalable quantum simulators for answering scientific and industrial questions.
