The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) will be upgraded to further increase the instantaneous rate of particle collisions (luminosity) and become the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). This increase in luminosity will significantly increase the number of particles interacting with the detector. The interaction of particles with a detector is referred to as "hit". The HL-LHC will yield many more detector hits, which will pose a combinatorial challenge by using reconstruction algorithms to determine particle trajectories from those hits. This work explores the possibility of converting a novel graph neural network model, that can optimally take into account the sparse nature of the tracking detector data and their complex geometry, to a hybrid quantum-classical graph neural network that benefits from using variational quantum layers. We show that this hybrid model can perform similar to the classical approach. Also, we explore parametrized quantum circuits (PQC) with different expressibility and entangling capacities, and compare their training performance in order to quantify the expected benefits. These results can be used to build a future road map to further develop circuit-based hybrid quantum-classical graph neural networks.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) will undergo an upgrade to further increase the instantaneous rate of particle collisions (luminosity) and become the High Luminosity LHC. This increase in luminosity, will yield many more detector hits (occupancy), and thus measurements will pose a challenge to track reconstruction algorithms being responsible to determine particle trajectories from those hits. Similar challenges exist in non-high energy physics (HEP) ...

Hybrid Quantum-Classical Graph Neural Networks for Particle Track Reconstruction at the Large Hadron Collider
Tüysüz, Cenk; Demirköz, Melahat Bilge; Department of Physics (2021-8-5)
Particle collider experiments aim to understand Nature at small scales. Particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), collide particles at high rates (MHz) and high energies (TeV) in order to probe such small scales. High collision rates may bring many computational challenges. One of these challenges is particle track reconstruction, which is the task of distinguishing the trajectories of charged particles passing through the detect...
Comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip WDM applications
Erdinç, Havva; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Researches about the interaction of single atoms with electromagnetic field create the foundation of cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) technology. Microlasers, photon bandgap structures and quantum dot structures in cavities are the initial examples of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. This thesis is focused on the comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) applications in the weak coupling regime. Firstly, single QD embedded cavity (cavity QD EIT) and cavity-cavi...
Effects of radiation and their consequences for the performance of the forward calorimeters in the CMS experiment
Akchurin, N; et. al. (2002-01-01)
The experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will have to deal with unprecedented radiation levels. In the large-rapidity regions, close to the beam pipe, these levels reach megagrays per year. The detectors to be installed in these regions, the HF Calorimeters, are designed to operate under these conditions, In this paper, we describe the results of studies in which a prototype calorimeter was exposed to radiation of the type and intensity expected at the LHC. These studies made it possible to estima...
