Most of our customers find it convenient to let IonQ’s software stack handle the optimization of their circuits on our systems, IonQ Aria & IonQ Harmony. This is a quick route to working on applications without having to worry about what’s happening at the lowest levels. But some researchers and developers who want to advance the field of quantum computing have a need to control their circuits in a more deliberate way.
That’s why IonQ is now making a hardware-native gate set available. Starting today, we’ve enabled native gates, available via IonQ’s direct API, Google Cloud Marketplace integration, and open-source tools including Qiskit, Cirq and PennyLane. Developers will be able to specify what’s happening to every qubit as their algorithm runs.
