Note: At the moment this backend can only be used to test the connection to the testbed. It will NOT return data from a valid simulation of a quantum circuit.

IQM-backend for the qoqo/roqoqo quantum toolkit by HQS Quantum Simulations.

The qoqo_iqm/roqoqo-iqm packages provide backends for qoqo/roqoqo that allow the users to run quantum circuits on the IQM web API testbed. The testbed is accessed via a web REST-API. To run circuits or QuantumPrograms with this backend you need a valid access token. The access token can be set via the environment variable IQM_TOKENS_FILE that contains the path to the tokens.json file.

This repository contains two components:

  • The qoqo_iqm backend for the qoqo python interface to roqoqo
  • The roqoqo-iqm backend for roqoqo directly
