Clifford Code Constructions of Operator Quantum Error-Correcting Codes Academic Article uri icon


  • Recently, operator quantum error-correcting codes have been proposed to unify and generalize decoherence free subspaces, noiseless subsystems, and quantum error-correcting codes. This correspondence introduces a natural construction of such codes in terms of Clifford codes, an elegant generalization of stabilizer codes due to Knill. Character-theoretic methods are used to derive a simple method to construct operator quantum error-correcting codes from any classical additive code over a finite field, which obviates the need for self-orthogonal codes. 2008 IEEE.
