"Quantum computing and topological codes using continuous variables"

Continuous-variable (CV) approaches to quantum computing have certain advantages over standard qubit-based approaches. The most striking of these is the ability to make extremely large resource states for measurement-based quantum computing using small optical setups. Furthermore, local measurements on one of these states will transform it into a CV version of a topological quantum code, which has potential applications in condensed-matter theory, anonymous broadcasting, and quantum error correction. My talk will discuss the latest theoretical and experimental developments in this research area.
