The field of quantum computing is rapidly advancing, but as quantum computers increase in size and complexity, they become less like a tool and more like a mysterious ‘black box’. A team utilizing mathematical physics has now cracked this box open, managing to extract concrete metrics from seemingly random data sequences. These metrics serve as benchmarks for assessing quantum computer performance.

Experts from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Qusoft Research Centre Amsterdam, the University of Copenhagen, and the Technology Innovation Institute Abu Dhabi were involved in the work, which has now been published in Nature Communications.
