Fault-tolerant error correction
- investigating the effect of noise on the threshold
- comparing between schemes, such as between concatenated codes (Steane code) and surface codes
- inclusion of non-Markovian noise, and its effect of fault-tolerance
- Physical realizations of quantum systems towards computation, such as recent developments in superconducting qubit systems, ion trap arrays, quantum dot arrays.
- Novel experimental characterizations of noise, such as randomized benchmarking or the use of syndromes in error correction to infer noise properties.
- Used to work on quantum tomography, in particular, inferring about the state of a quantum system from small amounts of data.
