3/14 Work on Fault-tolerance in the one-way model -Raussendorf, PhD Thesis (2003) (http://edoc.ub.unimuenchen.de/archive/ ) -Nielsen and Dawson, PRA 71, (2005) -Aliferis and Leung, PRA 73, (2006) Proved that an Error Threshold existed, which could be determined by mapping noise in the cluster state to noise in a corresponding circuit model. -Dawson, Haselgrove and Nielsen, PRL 96, (2006) PRA 73, (2006) Error correcting schemes and associated error threshold values for optical setups STEANE 7 qubit and GOLAY 23 qubit codes -Ralph, Hayes and Gilchrist PRL, 95, (2005) -Varnava, Browne and Rudolph PRL 97, (2006) Loss tolerant schemes for linear optics setups -Raussendorf, Harrington and Goyal, Ann. Phys. 321, 2242 (2006) -Raussendorf and Harrington, quant-ph/ (2006) Fault-tolerant using topological error correction and surface codes -Silva et al., quant-ph/ (2006) -Fujii and Yamamoto, quant-ph/ (2006) Most Recently: -Dawson, Haselgrove and Nielsen, PRL 96, (2006). -Silva et al., quant-ph/ (2006).
4/14 Problems with Fault-tolerant schemes in the one-way model Large resource overheads: - A minimum of 7 qubits for an encoded qubit (STEANE code) Complicated structure for the encoded qubit: - Underlying graph to encode qubit is complex Error syndrome extraction techniques add additional overheads “One-buffered”, “two-at-a-time” and “fully-parallel” approaches complicate the model: - They modify the measurement patterns and entangling steps Off-line preparation of ancilla qubits can also be a cumbersome process: - setup dependent Q: Is there a way to achieve fault-tolerence using less resources?

12/14 Summary and Outlook M. S. Tame et al., work in progress (2007) 1) Investigating the error threshold performance for asymmetries in the collective approximation How does the performance of the 2- and 3-qubit Codes with asymmetries compare to standard cluster state Quantum Error Correcting Codes (QECC) and the natural fault-tolerance of cluster states? 2) Most resourceful method for the 3-qubit code
