Hybrid Quantum-Classical Codes
Place: room 317, ICTQT, UG
Abstract: Hybrid codes simultaneously encode both quantum and classical information together, giving an advantage over coding schemes where the quantum and classical information are transmitted separately. We construct the first known families of hybrid codes that are guaranteed to provide an advantage over quantum codes, as well as giving a construction of hybrid codes from subsystem codes that allow for different minimum distances for the encoded quantum and classical information . We also show how hybrid codes can be applied to the problem of faulty syndrome measurements and lead to the construction of new quantum data-syndrome codes.
