Quantum Computing and the Nuclear Industry: New Research by Jacobs
Recent research conducted by Jacobs, a key industry partner of MaThRad, underscores the potential advantages that Quantum Computing could offer in optimizing the planning, design, and operation of radiation facilities across the nuclear, medical, and space sectors.
Focusing on Monte Carlo codes, vital for understanding and simulating the movement of radiation particles within diverse materials, Jacobs, through its ANSWERS software service, lead a project to explore the transformative potential of Quantum Computing in accelerating Monte Carlo methods for Radiation Transport Modelling, thereby enhancing efficiency and competitiveness compared to conventional digital computing.
Professor Paul Smith, Technical Director at Jacobs ANSWERS, provides an in-depth explanation and more insights in his article with World Nuclear News. Click here to read.
