technologies for quantum computation, and it is unclear which will be the
clear winner. Evaluation of these technologies at the architectural level,
far beyond the small-scale prototypes of 1 to 2 qubits, is critical to
producing viable systems capable of executing both near and long-term
applications effectively. At a high level, we are tasked with asking and
answering important sets of questions with each new technology developed.
In this talk, I discuss two case studies involving emerging technologies:
use of multivalued logic for quantum computation and use of 2.5D quantum
architectures with bounded local “memory.” In the first part, we explore
the use of a variety of optimization techniques for specialized and
general-use of *intermediate* qudits, temporary occupancy of higher order
states, to reduce circuit runtimes and reduce physical device requirements
which directly translates into improved output quality. In the second part,
we introduce a scalable 2.5D architecture composed of resonant cavities and
evaluate its ability to support quantum error correction codes. In
particular, we design an architecture which directly matches the
requirements of known error correction codes to reduce physical device
requirements while accelerating key logical operations. I will conclude
with some current and future directions in this area.
Science at the University of Chicago, advised by Prof. Fred Chong. His
research is focused on interdisciplinary, full-stack optimization and the
evaluation of emerging quantum systems. Prior to the University of Chicago,
he received degrees in Computer Science, Chemistry, and Mathematics from
the University of Notre Dame.
