The Jülich UNified Infrastructure for Quantum computing
JUNIQ provides access to different quantum computing devices which can be used within the same programming environment.
The necessary quantum computing modules are provided. Currently, algorithms can be run on the JUQCS emulator or the D-Wave Quantum Annealer JUPSI.
Please use your JUNIQ account to log in or register if you have not already done so. In case you have not yet applied for quantum computing time please follow the instructions on our website.
Quantum Computing in Your Browser
Welcome to the Jülich UNified Infrastructure for Quantum computing (JUNIQ), which brings Quantum Computing (QC) to Your Browser. JUNIQ has been built as QC Service (QC-PaaS) that provides pre-configured access to different QC devices to European researchers and industry. The programming interface is based on the Jupyter environment for cloud development, making algorithm development, execution and documentation convenient and transferable between several quantum devices.

- D-WAVE ADVANTAGE™ SYSTEM
The D-Wave Advantage™ System is an annealing quantum computer with more than 5000 superconducting qubits. With quantum annealing, computations are carried out by first bringing a connected system of qubits into a simple and known lowest energy state described in the basis of an initial Hamiltonian. This state turns out to be a uniform superposition state described in the basis of the final Hamiltonian that encodes the problem to solve. The system is then shifted to the lowest energy state of the sought classical problem, the second Hamiltonian, by adiabatically changing the interactions of the qubits. Quantum annealing can especially be used to solve optimization, sampling and machine learning problems. Read more.
Quantum Software Development Framework
The JUNIQ portal offers access to a Qiskit development environment for quantum computing research. Besides from the default set of tools offered by Qiskit, this environment has been extended with several custom-made plugins which provide access to quantum computing backends which are otherwise not available to the public, such as the OpenSuperQ prototype quantum computer (coming soon) as well the QC-emulator JUQCS running on JURECA-DC.

The OpenSuperQ Prototype Quantum Computer
The European FET Flagship project OpenSuperQ developed a prototype quantum computing device maintained at the Peter Grünberg Institute of Forschungszentrum Jülich. Users of JUNIQ will soon be able to submit quantum computing experiments to this device through the extended Qiskit interface provided within the portal. Read more.
The Jülich Universal Quantum Computing Simulator
JUQCS is a massively parallel emulator of a universal quantum computer which runs on JURECA-DC, one of the HPC systems at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre of Forschungszentrum Jülich. Running on this hardware, JUQCS can simulate quantum circuits of up to 40 qubits. Read more.
