title = {Control and coherence time enhancement of the 0{\textendash}$\uppi$ qubit},
journal = {New Journal of Physics},
abstract = {Kitaev’s 0–π qubit encodes quantum information in two protected, near-degenerate states of a superconducting quantum circuit. In a recent work, we have shown that the coherence times of a realistic 0–π device can surpass that of today’s best superconducting qubits (Groszkowski et al 2018 New J. Phys. 20 043053). Here we address controllability of the 0–π qubit. Specifically, we investigate the potential for dispersive control and readout, and introduce a new, fast and high-fidelity single-qubit gate that can interpolate smoothly between logical X and Z. We characterize the action of this gate using a multi-level treatment of the device, and analyze the impact of circuit-element disorder and deviations in control and circuit parameters from their optimal values. Furthermore, we propose a cooling scheme to decrease the photon shot-noise dephasing rate, which we previously found to limit the coherence times of 0–π devices within reach of current experiments. Using this approach, we predict coherence time enhancements between one and three orders of magnitude, depending on parameter regime.},
