A Bridge-based Compression Algorithm for Topological Quantum Circuits
Hosted in Virtual Platform
DescriptionThe topological quantum error correction (TQEC) scheme is promising for scalable and reliable quantum computing, and the implementation resource of a TQEC circuit is abstracted to its space-time volume. Previous work shows that bridge compression can greatly compress TQEC circuits, but it was performed only manually. It is desirable to develop automated compression techniques for TQEC circuits to achieve low-overhead, large-scale quantum computations. In this paper, we present the first work that can automatically perform bridge compression on TQEC circuits. Compared with a state-of-the-art method, experimental results show that our proposed algorithm can averagely reduce space-time volumes by 70%.
