Abstract

To perform achieve fault-tolerant quantum computation, one can use flagged syndrome extraction with fewer ancilla qubits. However, it suffers from long circuit depth if one stabilizer is measured at a time. Previously, Reichardt showed that it is possible to measure multiple stabilizers with at most one shared flag qubit for certain small quantum codes. In this paper, we propose a procedure for general Calderbank-Shor-Steane codes of distance three so that multiple Z stabilizers (X stabilizers) can be fault tolerantly measured in parallel with one shared flag qubit. We simulate the memory and computation pseudothresholds for various code schemes. In particular, our parallel scheme based on Shor's nine-qubit code performs better than known seven- and nine-qubit schemes in the literature.
