Fault-tolerance against loss for photonic FTQEC

In general, fault-tolerant quantum error correction (FTQEC) procedures are designed to detect, correct, and be fault-tolerant against errors occurring within the qubit subspace. But in some qubit implementations, additional "leakage" errors can occur in which the system leaves this subspace, and standard FTQEC procedures may not be fault-tolerant against such errors. Generic methods for achieving fault-tolerance against leakage are costly in terms of resources. In this paper we demonstrate that…

Leakage suppression in the toric code
A leakage model that is physically motivated and efficient to simulate is developed and the surprising observation that for physical error rates less than 2 × 10-4, placing LRUs after every gate may achieve the lowest logical error rate is made.
Noise tailoring for quantum circuits via unitary 2t-design
This work proposes a method whereby the twirled noise over a unitary 2t-design (a set of unitary matrices that approximate the entire unitary group) for quantum circuits can be tailored into stochastic noise, which is an important guarantee for achieving fault-tolerant quantum computation.
Extensions of Randomized Benchmarking
This thesis gives a detailed review of the randomized benchmarking protocol, and presents the results of three collaborative projects which use techniques similar to randomized benchmarked to obtain previously hidden information.
