IBM's simulator allows the use of a reset gate ($|0\rangle$ gate) however when I try to run a circuit using this gate on the hardware it fails to execute. Is there a plan to physically realize this gate?
I am specifically interested in running dissipative algorithms which need to reset the ancilla. I can get around this by invoking extra ancilla to reset my original ancilla - but this requires a lot of qubits for anything but a modest circuit.
It looks like such things are possible, at least in principle: https://arxiv.org/abs/1801.07689
