Many-body hierarchy of dissipative timescales in a quantum computer

  • We show that current noisy quantum computers are ideal platforms for the simulation of quantum many-body dynamics in generic open systems. We demonstrate this using the IBM Quantum Computer as an experimental platform for confirming the theoretical prediction from Wang et al., [Phys. Rev. Lett. 124, 100604 (2020)] of an emergent hierarchy of relaxation timescales of many-body observables involving different numbers of qubits. Using different protocols, we leverage the intrinsic dissipation of the machine responsible for gate errors, to implement a quantum simulation of generic (i.e., structureless) local dissipative interactions.
