We propose a quantum error correction protocol for continuous-variable finite-energy, approximate Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill (GKP) states undergoing small Gaussian random displacement errors, based on the scheme of Glancy and Knill [Phys. Rev. A {\bf 73}, 012325 (2006)]. We show that combining multiple rounds of error-syndrome extraction with Bayesian estimation offers enhanced protection of GKP-encoded qubits over comparible single-round approaches. Furthermore, we show that the expected total…

Measurement-free preparation of grid states
A measurement-free preparation protocol, which deterministically prepares arbitrary logical grid states with a rectangular or hexagonal lattice, which can be readily implemented in trapped-ion or superconducting-circuit platforms to generate high-quality grid states using only a few interactions, even with the noise levels found in current systems.
Modular Bosonic Subsystem Codes.
We introduce a framework to decompose a bosonic mode into two virtual subsystems-a logical qubit and a gauge mode. This framework allows the entire toolkit of qubit-based quantum information to be
Quantum error correction with higher Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill codes: Minimal measurements and linear optics
It is shown that for a concatenation of GKP codes with a [n, k, d] stabilizer code only 2n measurements are needed in order to obtain the complete syndrome information, significantly reducing the number of measurements in comparison to the canonical concatenated measurement scheme and at the same time generalizing linear-optics-based syndrome detections to higher GKp codes.

Progress towards practical qubit computation using approximate Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill codes
This work investigates the impact of imperfect GKP states on computational circuits independently of the physical architecture and focuses on a state preparation approach in the photonic domain wherein photon-number-resolving measurements on some modes of Gaussian states produce non-Gaussian states in others.
All-Gaussian Universality and Fault Tolerance with the Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill Code.

An essential singularity is found in the entanglement fidelity of GKP codes in the limit of vanishing loss rate, and a generalization of spin-coherent states is introduced, extending the characterization to qudit binomial codes and yielding a multiqudit code.
