Q# and the Quantum Development Kit

开发量子应用程序和提出优化问题所需的所有工具

The development kit for quantum computing

The open-source Quantum Development Kit for Azure Quantum (in preview) offers tools for durable quantum application development on hardware-accelerated compute resources in Azure. Program your quantum algorithms and formulate optimization solutions, then apply those quantum solutions within the existing Azure platform to achieve real-world impacts now, before the development of a scalable quantum computer in the future.

Q#: a high-level programming language that allows you to focus your programming at the algorithmic level

Quantum computing simulator and resource estimator that provides real-world costs to run your solutions

由行业专家开发的用于算术、化学和机器学习的即用型库和示例

Optimization solvers inspired by quantum research that run on classical and accelerated compute resources in the cloud

Develop quantum applications to run in various environments

The Quantum Development Kit is the development kit for Azure Quantum. Build and run quantum applications using Q#, Qiskit, or Cirq to run on quantum hardware, or formulate solutions that execute optimization solvers running on classical hardware on Azure.

Run complex quantum operations with Q#

Q#, a high-level quantum-focused programming language from Microsoft, offers an intuitive and modern approach to quantum program development. Use it to focus your work at the algorithmic and application level to create quantum programs.

了解详细信息

使用熟悉的工具进行开发

The Quantum Development Kit includes feature-rich integration with Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, and Jupyter Notebooks. Use the Q# programming language on its own, in notebooks, and at the command line, or use a host language with both Python and .NET interoperability. Integrate your existing quantum workflows with support for Qiskit and Cirq. Formulate optimization solutions with the Azure Quantum optimization Python package.

Q# 和 Quantum 开发工具包常见问题

  • 量子计算利用量子力学来实现计算。优化是一类计算问题,它们是将来在量子计算机上运行的主要候选对象,与传统解决方案相比,它们具有量子优势。我们已经可以使用 Azure Quantum 解算器来加速优化问题,解算器如今在 Azure 中的经典硬件上运行的速度比许多其他经典优化技术要快。了解更多
  • Yes. The Quantum Development Kit is an open-source development kit that you can install on your laptop or other classical computers to simulate the computation of Q# programs on a small number of qubits. The number of qubits simulated depends on the memory size available. You can also run Q# code in web-hosted Jupyter Notebooks or with GitHub Codespaces without installing anything on your computer. You do need an Azure subscription, however, to run Q# programs on quantum hardware with Azure Quantum. Learn how to set up the Quantum Development Kit.
  • There are a few ways to get involved. Get started with Azure Quantum and the Quantum Development Kit. Explore quantum learning resources to learn more about quantum computing, optimization, Q#, Azure Quantum, and the development kit. Engage with Microsoft Quantum Network partners and startups. Join our growing community of contributors to the Quantum Development Kit open-source platform. And get notified about upcoming events for quantum computing and optimization.
  • No. If you’d prefer not to install the Quantum Development Kit locally, you can use it online or use a Docker image. You can also run quantum code in web-hosted Jupyter Notebooks or with GitHub Codespaces without installing anything on your computer. To develop Q# programs with Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code, install the Quantum Development Kit with the extensions for those development environments. Learn about all the ways you can use the Quantum Development Kit.
  • If you’re already using Python-based Qiskit and Cirq, you can easily get started with Azure Quantum and submit circuits using those frameworks. Learn more about developing with Qiskit and Cirq. In addition, Q# works great on its own or used with other languages like Python or C#. You can develop Python host programs that call Q# operations. Your Python code is just a normal Python program. You can use any Python environment, including Python-based Jupyter Notebooks, to write the Python program and call Q# operations. Learn more about developing with Q# and Python.
  • Q# grew out of a need to develop, compile, and run algorithms on both small-scale NISQ quantum hardware and future large-scale quantum computers. Q# is a modern quantum-focused programming language that enables productive development of large numbers of complex applications, not just simple quantum circuits. Quantum programs developed with Q# are durable across evolving quantum hardware platforms. Learn more about why we need Q#.
