Surface code with decoherence: An analysis of three superconducting

Joydip Ghosh, Austin G. Fowler, Michael R. Geller
We consider a realistic, multi-parameter error model and investigate the performance of the surface code for three possible fault-tolerant superconducting architectures. We map amplitude and phase damping to a diagonal Pauli "depolarization" channel via the Pauli twirl approximation, and obtain the logical error rate as a function of the qubit T1, T2 and intrinsic state preparation, gate, and readout errors. A numerical Monte Carlo simulation is performed to obtain the logical error rates and a leading order analytic model is constructed to estimate their scaling behavior below threshold. Our results suggest that large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computation should be possible with existing superconducting devices.
