Featured experiments

Explore some of the experiments researchers are conducting using Google’s quantum processors.

Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor

On Oct 23, 2019, Google announced it performed a calculation on a quantum processor in 300 seconds that would be impractical with the algorithms available at the time.

Hartree-Fock on a superconducting qubit quantum computer

The largest experimental quantum computation of chemistry to date, with double the qubits and 10X the number of gates than the previous record. We demonstrated new error mitigation techniques and modeled a chemical reaction mechanism for the first time.

QAOA of Non-Planar Graph Problems on a Planar Superconducting Processor

Using the Sycamore superconducting processor, we demonstrate the quantum approximate optimization algorithm (QAOA) for combinatorial optimization problems.

Observation of separated dynamics of charge and spin in the Fermi-Hubbard model

We implemented a high precision simulation of the Fermi-Hubbard model using over 1000 gates on a programmable quantum processor

Quantum computing service

The platform enabling researchers to access beyond-classical computational resources.

Weber quantum computer

Read about the details of our Weber quantum computer including features and performance.

Our quantum research lab

In our lab, we are working to build an error-corrected quantum computer. Fleets of cryostats, dedicated workshops, and a superconducting qubit fab bring together engineers and researchers to implement and deliver NISQ-era processors with increasing quantum computational volumes—stepping stones to our error-corrected quantum computer. We believe that by providing tools that can run beyond classical calculations to researchers, we will discover new applications together and build a better future for all.

The path to making a programmable superconducting processor

We take our quantum processor fabrication seriously and pride ourselves in our rapid iterations. In just a few years, we developed Foxtail, Bristlecone, and most recently Sycamore, the quantum processor that took humanity beyond classical computations and boldly into the NISQ era. Our quantum processor fabrication facility in Santa Barbara County will bring the next generation of even more capable quantum processors to the world.
