Title: ASCR Report on a Quantum Computing Testbed for Science

Abstract

This report details the findings of the Quantum Testbed Stakeholder Workshop sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research Program to identify opportunities and challenges in establishing a quantum testbed to advance quantum computing hardware and software systems that will enable science investigations. The workshop was help on February 14 – 16, 2017 in Washington DC and served as a forum for individual stakeholders from academia, industry, national laboratories, and government to provide their perspectives and ideas on the overarching goals and objectives of a quantum testbed, technical considerations, and how a quantum testbed program would be synergistic with other nascent quantum computing efforts in the US and worldwide. This report summarizes discussions on best practices for management of various types of collaborative research activities, including topics such as workforce training and building strong relationships with the research community. It also reviews specific technologies that have been identified by the ASCR Program as being important for the success of a quantum testbed whose overall goal is advancing quantum computing for scientific applications in the next five years.
