QResearch promotes and helps in making open-source and high-level quantum science. We believe that high-quality research requires a simple reconstruction of results and easy access to the results by anyone. Finally, sharing our experiences is important – the more people with different skills join, the more likely it is that the research outcomes will meet high-quality criteria.
QResearch offers help to researchers in the following ways:
- We help to find interns or experienced scientists to help in doing science;
- We encourage and help research projects to keep open-source standards, which includes the ability to reproduce their results;
- We advertise the research outcomes on our social media.
Note we don’t limit our help to the above tasks. If you’re interested in taking part in a research project, or you feel that we can help you in other forms, please contact us!
Current Research projects
Project name: Implementing QFA algorithms on noisy devices
Projects leaders: Dr. Abuzer Yakaryilmaz (QWorld & University of Latvia) and Ozlem Salehi (QWorld & Ozyegin University)
Members: Utku Birkan (BS Students in Middle East Technical University), Cem Nurlu (BS Students in Bogazici University), and Viktor Olejar (MS Students in Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice, Faculty of Science)
Project description: We are working on implementing two basic quantum finite automaton (QFA) algorithms on currently available quantum computers and analysing the performance of these machines based on the experiment results. We are also using different methods to modify the algorithms in order to get better results against noise and investigating error mitigation techniques to reduce the effects of noise.
This project was initiated during QIntern2020.
