Definition of a NISQ device with respect to qubit counts and error rates

How do we define whether a device is a noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) device with respect to number of qubits and their error rates? Does it make sense to do this? I believe I once saw a ...

What are the “nice” properties of the diamond norm and why is it used?

I have heard about the diamond norm, and from what I understood it is a "nice" tool to quantify quality of quantum gates in the NISQ era. I would like to know a little more before going in detail in ...

Design NISQ Circuit with StrawberryFields

I am trying to design this circuits with strawberry fields. However I could not connect my first and second qubit mode: orange boxes are beam splitters, blue boxes are phase shifters. The green box ...

Dealing with noise in NISQ

I wanted to know if there are some way in NISQ (we run "bare" gate without Q.E.C) to certify if an algorithm will give a correct or wrong answer based on the process of a single gate ? For example in ...

What is the “quantum mean value problem”?

What is the "Quantum mean value problem"? A definition I found was that it is "estimating the expected value of the tensor product observable on the output state of a quantum circuit&...
