Questions tagged [physical-realization]

For questions about practical computers or processors that run on a quantum architecture. This is for questions about the machines themselves, not just any computing that could take place on one. You may also use this tag for questions on realistic implementations of quantum channels. DO NOT use for questions about simulation or emulation of quantum computers, or cloud-based quantum computing services like the IBM Q Experience.
