Quantum error correction (QEC) is necessary for a practical quantum computer because of the inevitable coupling of quantum systems with the uncontrolled environment. A measurement-based QEC requires rapid extraction of error syndromes without disturbing the stored information and fast real-time feedback control for error corrections. Encoding quantum information on photonic states in a microwave cavity for QEC has attracted a lot of interests because of its hardware efficiency. This scheme benefits from the infinite dimensional Hilbert space of a harmonic oscillator for redundant information encoding and only one error syndrome that needs to be monitored. In this talk, I will describe our experimental realization of both repetitive QEC with a binomial bosonic code in a circuit quantum electrodynamics architecture and full control on the logical qubit . I will also discuss our recent experimental realization of an error transparent gate.
