Quantum variational learning for quantum error-correcting codes
VarQEC, a noise-resilient variational quantum algorithm to search for quantum codes with a hardware-efficient encoding circuit, finds many new channel-adaptive codes for error models involv-ing nearest-neighbor correlated errors and sheds new light on the understanding of QECC.
Testing of flag-based fault-tolerance on IBM quantum devices.
A benchmarking method to test fault-tolerant quantum error correction with flags for the [[5,1,3]] code on NISQ devices is introduced and it is shown that this flagged scheme is testable on N ISQ devices by checking how much the subspace of intermediate state overlaps with the expected state in the presence of noise.


Experimental Repetitive Quantum Error Correction
This work implements multiple quantum error correction cycles for phase-flip errors on qubits encoded with trapped ions using a quantum-feedback algorithm using high-fidelity gate operations and a reset technique for the auxiliary qubits.
Quantum Error Correction with Only Two Extra Qubits.
Fault-tolerant error-correction procedures that use only two extra qubits are introduced, based on adding "flags" to catch the faults that can lead to correlated errors on the data.
Realization of three-qubit quantum error correction with superconducting circuits
This work encodes a quantum state, induce errors on the qubits and decode the error syndrome, which is used as the input to a three-qubit gate that corrects the primary qubit if it was flipped, and demonstrates the predicted first-order insensitivity to errors.
Detected-jump-error-correcting quantum codes, quantum error designs, and quantum computation
The construction of a family of one detected jump-error correcting quantumcodes is shown and the optimal redundancy, encoding and recovery as well as general properties ofdetected jump- error correcting quantum codes are discussed.
An Introduction to Quantum Error Correction
The stabilizer formalism for quantum codes also illustrates the relationships to classical coding theory, particularly classical codes over GF(4), the finite field with four elements.
Fault-Tolerant Error Correction with Efficient Quantum Codes.
This work exhibits a simple, systematic procedure for detecting and correcting errors using any of the recently reported quantum error-correcting codes, derived using a recently introduced group-theoretic framework for unifying all known quantum codes.
Extending the lifetime of a quantum bit with error correction in superconducting circuits
A QEC system that reaches the break-even point by suppressing the natural errors due to energy loss for a qubit logically encoded in superpositions of Schrödinger-cat states of a superconducting resonator is demonstrated.
Logic gates at the surface code threshold: Superconducting qubits poised for fault-tolerant quantum computing
The results demonstrate that Josephson quantum computing is a high-fidelity technology, with a clear path to scaling up to large-scale, fault-tolerant quantum circuits.
Fault-Tolerant Logical Gates in the IBM Quantum Experience.
It is demonstrated that a small but useful error detecting code improves the fidelity of the fault-tolerant gates implemented in the code space as compared to theidelity of physically equivalent gates implemented on physical qubits.
Quantum error correction for communication with linear optics
An efficient, compact scheme involving only linear optical elements and feedback, which performs error correction for both quantum and classical noise, which may find application in quantum cryptographic networks (where low noise is equivalent to high security), possibly extending their range far beyond limits imposed by system losses.
