The shortage of quantum computers, and their current state of development, constrains research in many fields that could benefit from quantum computing. They are an expensive and scarce resource. The time available for their use is very limited, influenced by a growing demand. Fortunately, the work of a quantum computer can be simulated using a conventional computer. However, its performance is clearly inferior, taking so long to execute quantum experiments that they are a hindrance to research advancement.

From the end of 2019, CTIC counts on a powerful supercomputer capable of running quantum simulations of up to 38 logical qubits, and hundreds more under certain conditions. Given the limited access and availability of quantum computers, the Quantum Computing team at CTIC has developed QUTE, a robust quantum simulation platform. QUTE is easy-to-use and completes in a few minutes complicated quantum simulations that would take hours or even days on an ordinary computer.

QUTE enables researchers to create their own experiments or import those they already have, and run them on the simulator. In addition, it is always possible to check the status of your experiment and when the work is finished, the platform will send you an email to let you know that the results are available.


QUTE user interface

Research experts in quantum computing from the University of Oviedo have supported us in the development of the platform. Universities and organisations from all over Europe have also helped us during the testing phase, in order to ensure QUTE usability and its tuning for best performance.

QUTE is now available to any researcher or organization interested in testing it, which can be requested by filling out this form. For any other type of enquiry, please contact us via e-mail at
