# Does qiskit_ionq have the possibility of simulating quantum circuits with noise?

I'm using qiskit_ionq API for simulating quantum circuits on ionq devices. Currently, I'm using the ionq_simulator backend, but I think it performs noiseless simulations.

Is there any possibility of introducing noise in the simulations?

• So you want to introduce a noise model using the calibrated data of the actual ionq hardware? I know you can do that with ibm hardware by just importing the noise_model from a particular real hardware. If you just want to do custom noise then it doesn't matter if it is ionq or ibm... just make up some artificial noise model.
