Today’s noisy quantum processors are prone to errors that can quickly knock a quantum calculation off course. As a result, quantum error correction schemes are used to make some nascent quantum computers more tolerant to such faults. This involves using a large number of qubits – called “physical” qubits – to create one fault-tolerant “logical” qub…
