Digital quantum simulation for quantum control problems

We introduce a hybrid quantum algorithm for the problem of designing shaped electromagnetic fields to optimally control molecular systems.

The algorithm could be used on future quantum computers to design optimal fields for coherently controlling molecular transformations relevant to chemical, biological, and materials applications.
