Generating Fault-Tolerant Cluster States from Crystal Structures

Quantum information is delicate.  To preserve it, we must constantly interact  with our system in order to remove errors.  However, not all patterns of interaction are made equal; some strategies for removing errors are more robust than others. In this work (arXiv:1909.11817),  Michael Newman, [...]
