Abstract

Qubit loss and gate failure are significant problems for the development of scalable quantum computing. Recently, various schemes have been proposed for tolerating qubit loss and gate failure. These include schemes based on cluster and parity states. We show that by designing such schemes specifically to tolerate these error types we cause an exponential blowout in depolarizing noise. We discuss several examples and propose techniques for minimizing this problem. In general, this introduces a tradeoff with other undesirable effects. In some cases this is physical resource requirements, while in others it is noise rates.
