Quantum computing for structural materials
Recently, Ising machines including quantum annealing machines, attract overwhelming attention as a technology that opens up future possibilities. On the other hand, the phase-field model has demonstrated its high performance in material development, though it takes a long time to achieve equilibrium. We proposed a new model which brings remarkable acceleration in obtaining the phase-separation structure. The significant acceleration of the phase-field simulation by the quantum technique pushes the material development to the next stage.
