High Performance Quantum Computing in Nanoelectronics

The computation demand in modeling and simulation of electron devices is still growing and it is particularly high in nanoelectronics where nanoscale electro-thermal analysis can be used as an example. Hopefully, the High-Performance Computing (HPC) and High-Performance Quantum Computing (HPQC) infrastructures become more easily accessible and offer researchers some new opportunities based on the open and shared resources including not only computing facilities with quantum units but also knowledge with currently observed openings in the field of intellectual property issues. An overview of the current trends and initiatives from a worldwide perspective is illustrated by the lecturer’s explorations of the HPC opportunities in nanoelectronics. Some practical examples and instructions for potential users are presented, inspiring the audience to exploratory tests of largely available modern tools.


Prof. Adam Waldemar Skorek, M’87, SM’90, F’09 completed Bachelor and Master of Electrical Engineering Program at Białystok University of Technology (Poland) receiving both Master and Engineer degrees in 1980. Participant of the Electrical Engineering Faculty Doctoral Studies, he received a Doctor of Technical Sciences degree in Electrical Engineering at Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) in 1983. From 1983 to 1987 he was a Visiting Lecturer at the Institute of Telecommunications in Oran (Algeria). In 1987, he joined the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières (UQTR), where currently, he is a Full Professor and Director of the Research Group on Industrial Electronics. He founded the UQTR’s Electro-Thermal Management Laboratory which succeeded both the NanoHeat Laboratory and the UQTR’s Industrial ElectroHeat Laboratory founded and directed by himself since 1989. He is conducting electrical engineering courses for Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. students. His research works was granted by NSERC, CFI, FRQNT, MITACS and Industry. He was made contributions to the numerical analysis of electro-thermal phenomena exploring and applying various techniques to electrical apparatus and electronic devices. He published and co-published over 140 papers including works on High Performance Computing applications in electro-thermal analysis. A number of those publications are available at IEEE Xplore. He was a Chair of Canadian Heads and Chairs of Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments. Volunteering for more than 34 years in IEEE, he currently serves as the IEEE Fellow Committee Member and the IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award Chair. The IEEE Fellow, as well Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada - he is the recipient of the IEEE RAB/MGA Leadership Award, the IEEE Canada W.S. Read Outstanding Services Award, and 2021 IEEE Industry Application Society Distinguished Services Award.
