ArQTiC is an open-source, full-stack software package built for the simulations of materials on quantum computers. It currently can simulate materials that can be modeled by any Hamiltonian derived from a generic, one-dimensional, time-dependent Heisenberg Hamiltonain. ArQTiC includes modules for generating quantum programs for real- and imaginary-time evolution, quantum circuit optimization, connection to various quantum backends via the cloud, and post-processing of quantum results. By enabling users to seamlessly perform and analyze materials simulations on quantum computers by simply providing a minimal input text file, ArQTiC opens this field to a broader community of scientists from a wider range of scientific domains.
