Dynamical Localization Simulated on Actual Quantum Hardware

Entropy (Basel). 2021 May 23;23(6):654. doi: 10.3390/e23060654.


Quantum computers are invaluable tools to explore the properties of complex quantum systems. We show that dynamical localization of the quantum sawtooth map, a highly sensitive quantum coherent phenomenon, can be simulated on actual, small-scale quantum processors. Our results demonstrate that quantum computing of dynamical localization may become a convenient tool for evaluating advances in quantum hardware performances.
