In this paper, we implement a quantum algorithm -on IBM quantum devices, IBM QASM simulator and PPRC computer cluster -to find the energy values of the ground state and the first excited state of a particle in a finite square-well potential. We use the quantum phase estimation technique and the iterative one to execute the program on PPRC cluster and IBM devices, respectively. Our results obtained from executing the quantum circuits on the IBM classical devices show that our circuits succeed at…
