11/21 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 lead to 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-tolerance using less resources?

19/21 Outlook M. S. Tame et al., work in progress (2007) 1) Investigating the performance of the fault-tolerance, 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). 2) Most resourceful method for the 3-qubit code
