# Validating quantum computers using randomized model circuits

30 Nov 2018Andrew W. CrossLev S. BishopSarah SheldonPaul D. NationJay M. Gambetta

We introduce a single-number metric, quantum volume, that can be measured using a concrete protocol on near-term quantum computers of modest size ($n\lesssim 50$), and measure it on several state-of-the-art transmon devices, finding values as high as 8. The quantum volume is linked to system error rates, and is empirically reduced by uncontrolled interactions within the system... (read more)
