Quantum chemistry is one of the most promising near-term applications of quantum computers. Quantum algorithms such as variational quantum eigen solver (VQE) and variational quantum deflation (VQD) algorithms have been mainly applied for molecular systems and there is a need to implement such methods for periodic solids. Using Wannier tight-binding Hamiltonian (WTBH) approaches, we demonstrate the application of VQE and VQD to accurately predict both electronic and phonon bandstructure properties of several elemental as well as multi-component solid-state materials. We apply VQE–VQD calculations for 307 spin–orbit coupling based electronic WTBHs and 933 finite-difference based phonon WTBHs. Also, we discuss a workflow for using VQD with lattice Green’s function that can be used for solving dynamical mean-field theory problems. The WTBH model solvers can be used for testing other quantum algorithms and models also.
