Simplified quantum error detection and correction for superconducting qubits

  title={Simplified quantum error detection and correction for superconducting qubits},
  author={K G Keane and Alexander N. Korotkov},
  journal={Physical Review A},
We analyze simple quantum error detection and quantum error correction protocols relevant to current experiments with superconducting qubits. We show that for qubits with energy relaxation the repetitive N-qubit codes cannot be used for quantum error correction, but can be used for quantum error detection. In the latter case it is sufficient to use only two qubits for the encoding. In the analysis we demonstrate a useful technique of unraveling the qubit energy relaxation into "relaxation" and…

Experimental recovery of a qubit from partial collapse.
A method to restore the state of a single qubit, in principle perfectly, after it has partially collapsed, which resembles the classical Hahn spin echo but works on a wider class of relaxation processes, in which the quantum state partially leaves the computational Hilbert space.

The control of individual quantum systems is now a reality in a variety of physical settings. Feedback control is an important class of control methods because of its ability to reduce the effects of
Effect of weak measurement on entanglement distribution over noisy channels
Remote distributions of bipartite and multipartite entangled states in the amplitudedamping environment are investigated by combining NRWMs and entanglement distillation protocols (EDPs) and it is demonstrated that the NRWM can not only reduce the fidelity thresholds for distillability of decohered W states, but also raise the distillation efficiencies of W states.
