In medicine non-thermal plasma effects can be used for tissue sterilization, cell detachment, genetic transfection and wound healing where both direct and indirect treatments can be applied.
Numerical simulation of the plasma’s multi-physics processes would significantly speed-up the development of plasma treatments.
Modelling plasma at full complexity combines a.o. modelling of electromagnetics (Maxwell), plasma flow (Navier Stokes) and plasma composition (temperature, pressure, advection and conduction).
Even with todays supercomputers solving the full set of differential equations of a self-consistent plasma models are out of reach.
Quantum, and more particularly PASQAL’s unique and proprietary solvers for differential equations may offer a chance of solving self-consistent plasma models at full complexity.
And PASQAL’s analog-digital approach to implementing our PDE solvers makes them a promising candidate for early quantum advantage.
