Stochastic Electrodynamics Simulations using the Xanadu Quantum Cloud

The proposed project investigates an approach to solve difficult physics problems, which are too computationally intensive for standard computers, using Xanadu’s near-term quantum computers. The goal of the project is to create a simulation tool that harnesses the exponential increase in efficiency offered by quantum computers to simulate the movement of particles and the subsequent emitted radiation at the nanometer scale. These simulations could have practical implications for experiments involving optical and laser physics and could lead to further insights concerning atomic behaviour. The project will showcase the power of the Xanadu computational platform for next-generation physics simulations and can be used by scientists in many areas of the physical sciences for their own research.
