We describe an experimental effort designing and deploying error-robust single-qubit operations using a cloud-based quantum computer and analog-layer programming access. We design numerically-optimized pulses that implement target operations and exhibit robustness to various error processes including dephasing noise, instabilities in control amplitudes, and crosstalk. Pulse optimization is performed using a flexible optimization package incorporating a device model and physically-relevant…

Efficient sequential consistency via conflict ordering
This paper identifies those conflicting memory operations whose ordering is critical for the maintenance of SC and explicitly order them, which allows us to safely (non-speculatively) complete memory operations past pending writes, thus reducing memory ordering stalls.
