IonQ Performs First Quantum Simulation of a Water Molecule

Today IonQ announced that its quantum computer has achieved a critical milestone: simulating the water molecule with accuracy approaching what is needed for practical applications in the promising field of computational chemistry. “A manuscript released today describes how IonQ scientists calculated the energy of the water molecule in its lowest or natural state. The results from IonQ’s machine approached the precision a computer model would need to make an accurate chemical prediction, known as chemical accuracy.”
