Abstract: We have developed an efficient quantum control scheme that allows for arbitrary operations on a cavity mode using strongly dispersive qubit-cavity interaction and time-dependent drives [1,2]. In addition, we have discovered a new class of bosonic quantum error correcting codes, which can correct both cavity loss and dephasing errors [3]. Our control scheme can readily be implemented using circuit QED systems, and extended for quantum error correction to protect information encoded in bosonic codes [4]. Moreover, engineered dissipation can also implement holonomic quantum computation using superconducting circuits [5,6].
