Hi! I was wondering if there’s any way to print out my circuit so that my circuit is same as what I was meant to design. Since there is no insert strategy for gates (such as the ones in Cirq), I am not sure whether my quantum circuit is designed in the way I was thinking.
We’re also currently working on adding a circuit drawing feature as well
dev = qml.device('default.qubit', wires=2) @qml.qnode(dev) def circuit(x): qml.RZ(x, wires=0) qml.CNOT(wires=[0,1]) qml.RY(x, wires=1) return qml.expval(qml.PauliZ(1)) circuit(0.543) circuit.print_applied()
will give the output
Operations ---------- RZ(0.543, wires=0) CNOT(wires=[0,1]) RY(0.543, wires=1) Observables ----------- expval(PauliZ(wires=1))
Hi- thanks! Also, I have a few questions on designing quantum circuits. Is there any way that I can contact with you in easier/faster way other than this forum? If there’s not, this forum would be fine with me.
This forum would likely be the faster way, since it is checked by various PennyLane developers — so if I don’t see your reply straight away, someone else would be able to reply in the meantime
In addition, you can also join our Slack channel: the link is https://u.strawberryfields.ai/slack
To follow on from your original question, you can also directly access the Cirq circuit object; it is available via
dev.circuit. With this object, you can perform standard Cirq circuit drawing.
