# Title: Implementation of Quantum Machine Learning for Electronic Structure Calculations of Periodic Systems on Quantum Computing Devices

(Submitted on 2 Mar 2021 (v1), last revised 28 May 2021 (this version, v2))

Abstract: Quantum machine learning algorithms, the extensions of machine learning to quantum regimes, are believed to be more powerful as they leverage the power of quantum properties. Quantum machine learning methods have been employed to solve quantum many-body systems and have demonstrated accurate electronic structure calculations of lattice models, molecular systems, and recently periodic systems. A hybrid approach using restricted Boltzmann machines and a quantum algorithm to obtain the probability distribution that can be optimized classically is a promising method due to its efficiency and ease of implementation. Here we implement the benchmark test of the hybrid quantum machine learning on the IBM-Q quantum computer to calculate the electronic structure of typical 2-dimensional crystal structures: hexagonal-Boron Nitride and graphene. The band structures of these systems calculated using the hybrid quantum machine learning are in good agreement with those obtained by the conventional electronic structure calculation. This benchmark result implies that the hybrid quantum machine learning, empowered by quantum computers, could provide a new way of calculating the electronic structures of quantum many-body systems.
