DescriptionSimulating electronic properties of molecules is an important task for different areas of both research

and industry. Due to the exponential scaling of the problem space, solving such problems exactly

becomes rapidly unfeasible on classical computers. As electronic structure problems are quantum

mechanical problems, quantum devices are naturally predestinated for such calculations. In this talk,

I will present electronic structure calculation results done on current quantum computers. In

particular, I will show how to utilize a quantum computer to find the energy surfaces of small

molecules. This will be illustrated by examples of molecular hydrogen and lithium hydride. Moreover,

I will discuss the feasibility of doing such calculations for larger molecules.
