Quantum error correction (QEC) is necessary for achieving a scalable and fault-tolerant quantum computer, as physical operations on quantum states are prone to errors. QEC can be challenging as entangled states of many physical qubits are used to encode quantum information. The performance of QEC [...]

Complex bosonic states play an important role in quantum simulations, quantum computation and spin-boson interactions. While direct readout of multi-mode bosonic states can be challenging, the Jaynes-Cummings type interactions can coherently map the information of bosonic states onto spin states [...]

Uncertainty in control parameters limits the quality of operations and algorithms on a quantum computer. Typical methods for building operations that are robust to these errors still optimize for the ideal case. In our recent publication (Kang, M. et al., Phys. Rev. Applied 16, 024039, [...]

In our new preprint (arXiv: 2104.01119) in collaboration with the MIST lab, we demonstrate a new technique “hidden inverses”, which suppresses slow varying coherent errors in quantum computing circuits efficiently. The “hidden inverses” method reduces control errors by constructing quantum gates [...]

A new work has been posted on the arXiv entitled 'Extended Flag Gadgets for Low-Overhead Circuit Verification.' In this work we propose an extension to the flag qubit framework which can be applied in a more general setting. Our gadgets can detect faults on generic unitaries, and are low overhead [...]

Our new preprint on coupling molecular and atomic ion qubits can be found at arXiv:2008.09201 .This work is in collaboration with the Eric Hudson and Wes Campbell groups at UCLA and Michael Heaven at Emory University. In this article we discuss a novel laser-free method of using an atomic ion for [...]
