IQC/Physics Special Seminar - Loren Swenson, D-Wave Systems

I will introduce quantum annealing as a technique for harnessing quantum mechanics to solve hard problems. The design of a quantum annealing processor based on superconducting flux qubits, some of the challenges we have encountered in constructing it, and measurements confirming the role of quantum mechanics in such processors will be presented. Finally, I will briefly discuss recent benchmarking and simulation results using the D-Wave 2000Q processor.
