# Use state vector simulator with TensorCircuit

Is there a option to use instead of tensor network contraction state vector simulator for quantum circuits? This might be useful for small sized circuits, but I would still like to use TensorCircuit s.t. I have the other options when expanding the circuit.

If you really want to test some features of the state-vector simulator, you can do this in tensorcircuit by setup the contractor as tc.set_contractor("plain"). Warning: this plain contractor mimics the behavior for state-vector simulator but it can be slow. I really don't recommend this simulator contractor unless you clearly know what you are doing.
