Remarkable Degenerate Quantum Stabilizer Codes Derived from Duadic Codes Academic Article uri icon


  • Good quantum codes, such as quantum MDS codes, are typically nondegenerate, meaning that errors of small weight require active error-correction, which is-unfortunately-itself prone to errors. In this paper, examples of degenerate quantum codes are constructed that alleviate this problem in that they allow some errors of small weight that do not require active error correction. In particular, two new families of [[n, 1, n]]q degenerate quantum codes are derived from classical duadic codes. 2006 IEEE.
