Having the hardware physically present allows complete experiment control. It also enables more comprehensive education and training opportunities. Students gain hands-on experience with the hardware, learning to set up and operate the quantum computer directly. They can also see how a quantum computer behaves when not fully cooled, attach external peripherals to verify experiments, calibrate the quantum computer, and much more.

Exemplary Educational Use Cases for IQM Spark™


In this lab section, students will delve into the crucial process of calibrating a quantum computer. Calibration is a vital step to ensure the accuracy and reliability of quantum operations in a superconducting qubit system. Through hands-on activities, participants will gain practical insights into the challenges and techniques involved in achieving precise control over quantum states. Students work in small groups, each assigned to a physical qubit (or coupler) on the quantum hardware, i.e. students fine-tune qubit frequencies to match target values, minimizing frequency deviations that can cause gate errors. By exploring different calibration sets they explore the effect.


Driving qubits and reading out their state is a crucial task within quantum computing. This is by defining gates using a given API or framework. These gates are then transformed into microwave pulses. By executing and compiling quantum circuits using software and observing their effects using an oscilloscope connected to actual hardware, students will gain a deeper understanding of the mode of action of a quantum computer. In this lab section, students will analyze the resulting readout data in multiple experiments.
