Abstract

The ability to generate large-scale entanglement is an important progenitor of quantum information processing capability in noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices. In this paper, the extent to which entangled quantum states over large numbers of qubits can be prepared on current superconducting quantum devices is investigated. Native-graph states on the IBM Quantum 65-qubit ibmq_manhattan device and the 53-qubit ibmq_rochester device are prepared and quantum readout-error mitigation (QREM) is applied. Connected entanglement graphs spanning each of the full devices are detected, indicating bipartite entanglement over the whole of each device. The application of QREM is shown to incre..
