Quantum Middleware

Quantum computers are powerful devices designed to execute complex operations through algorithms. From a practical point of view, users of quantum devices need software tools in order to programme, execute and retrieve results from the quantum hardware. This set of software tools is called full stack and includes a range of components, from management of the quantum chip to the high-level programming interface for the implementation of custom codes and procedures.

Quantum middleware

The Quantum Middleware team investigates and develops the full-stack software required to interact with quantum systems and simulators. This includes the implementation of a large codebase of quantum algorithms, classical simulation of quantum computation, and the control and reconstruction algorithms of quantum devices measurements.

Our main research activity focuses on the development of Qibo – an open-source software for quantum computing, with hardware acceleration support – that is being designed to prepare, schedule and execute quantum algorithms using classical simulation and quantum devices.

Quantum Middleware

Prof. Dr Stefano Carrazza is Director of the Quantum Middleware group as scientific collaborator from the University of Milan (Italy). Prof. Carrazza’s primary research focus is on computational models and methods applied to science. Prof. Carrazza had acquired experience in quantum optics at the Institut Lumière Matière in Lyon (France); worked with cavity quantum electrodynamics at the Laboratoire Kastler-Brossel (ENS) in Paris with Nobel Prize winner Prof. Dr Serge Haroche; conducted data analysis and software development for heavy-ion physics with ALICE at CERN (Switzerland); and worked on theoretical physics at CERN as research fellow and visitor. Prof. Carrazza earned a PhD in Physics, Astrophysics and Applied Physics from the University of Milan in Italy; an MSc in Sciences of Matter and Physics and a BSc in Physics, both from École Normale Supérieure in France; currently, researcher at the University of Milan and associate member of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare in Italy.
