Proposals are expected to further mature alternative and promising quantum computation and simulation platforms which have the prospects of high scalability and programmability, to complement the ones already supported by the Quantum Technologies Flagship.
In order to reach large-scale quantum computation and simulation in Europe, breakthroughs in scalability of quantum processors and simulators, devices and integrated platforms are needed, together with the ability to perform all necessary operations of the quantum systems to have a fully programmable quantum computer or simulator. Breakthroughs in scalability need to be achieved along with breakthroughs in fidelity.
The development of alternative quantum computer and simulator systems and platforms, based for example on photonic or nitrogen vacancy-centre platforms or hybrid systems, should be integrating the key building blocks such as individual quantum systems (i.e. >10 qubits for a quantum computer and >50 quantum units for a quantum simulator), control electronics, quantum software stack, use case applications, etc. Work should address the scalability towards large systems (>100 qubits for a quantum computer and >1000 quantum units for a quantum simulator), the verification and validation of the quantum computation or simulation, solving a concrete problem to demonstrate the quantum advantage. In addition, quantum computation platform should explore fault-tolerance.
