Key Details

A quantum annealer sampled chemical space to find molecules with target emission wavelength

Important molecular features for emission were extracted from the sampling

Screening on these features reduced search space by over 99%

Quantum annealing enables orders of magnitude faster materials discovery

Quantum computing speeds up the search for new organic light-emitting materials

This paper explores using a quantum annealer to efficiently search chemical databases and identify promising organic molecules for light-emitting applications. The quantum annealer rapidly samples the huge chemical space to determine the most important molecular features that influence emission wavelength. Focusing the search on these key features enables over 99% of non-optimal molecules to be screened out, massively accelerating the materials discovery process.
