Center for Computing Research

The Center for Computing Research (CCR) at Sandia creates technology and solutions for many of our nation's most demanding national security challenges. The Center's portfolio spans the spectrum from fundamental research to state‑of‑the‑art applications. Our work includes computer system architecture (both hardware and software); enabling technology for modeling physical and engineering systems; and research in discrete mathematics, data analytics, cognitive modeling, and decision support materials.

    QSCOUT / Jaqal at the Frontier of Quantum Computing

    DOE/ASCR is investing over 5 years in Sandia to build and host the Quantum Scientific Computing Open User Testbed (QSCOUT): a quantum testbed based on trapped ions that is available to the research community (led by Susan Clark, 5225). As an open platform, it will not only provide full specifications and control for the realization of all high level quantum and classical processes, it will also enable researchers to investigate, alter, and optimize the internals of the testbed and test more advanced implementations of quantum operations. To maximize the usability and impact of QSCOUT, Sandia researchers in 1400 (Andrew Landahl, 1425) have led the development of the Jaqal quantum assembly language, which has been publicly released in conjunction with a QSCOUT emulator.  QSCOUT is currently hosting external user teams from UNM, ORNL, IBM, the University of Indiana, and the University of California at Berkeley for scientific discovery in quantum computing.
