QUTE is a general-purpose quantum computing simulation that enables quantum computing researchers to have access to high performance simulations.
One of the main difficulties that arises when trying to exploit the advantages of quantum computing techniques is the limitation of current quantum hardware due to imperfections, noise and restricted scalability. In addition, there is a shortage of quantum computers, constraining research in many fields that could benefit from quantum computing. For these reasons, the use of classical simulators of quantum devices is of paramount importance for implementing, testing and tuning quantum solutions.

We therefore give the scientific community access to the QUTE platform, which is already used by a growing number of researchers at leading institutions both in Spain[1] and in the rest of the world[2].

Our quantum computing research team engineered QUTE based on an in-house supercomputer (ISAAC) powerful enough to simulate quantum circuits of up to 38 qubits, and even more under particular simulations. We designed the architecture of QUTE in collaboration with the QHPC group at the University of Oviedo, and our team developed many of its software components.

CTIC also offers support services to the institutions using the QUTE platform, including solving questions about quantum programming and helping in the design of algorithms or experiments for specific applications of Quantum Computing, such as for optimization and machine learning problems.
