In this talk I will discuss several studies in which quantum computers have been proposed as tools for studying particle theories. The first study uses quantum annealers to implement simple scalar field theories and observe quantum tunnelling, which follows the expected analytic behaviour: for example the decay rate follows the WKB approximation. The second more recent idea uses photonic devices to implement quantum tunnelling. In principle in both of these studies we are observing non-perturbative effects, suggesting that these and similar methods may be of interest in understanding a wide range of phenomena. The talk will be pedagogical.
