Optical continuous-variable cluster states
Nicolas Menicucci , University of Sydney

Area: Quantum information


I will describe the theoretical underpinnings of one-way quantum computation using continuous-variable systems, as well as the pros and cons of several different methods of experimental implementation using lasers. Issues related to error correction and fault tolerance -- many of which remain open problems -- will also be discussed.
