Abstract: Continuous-variable (CV) quantum information processing is a field concerned with using one or more harmonic oscillators to protect, manipulate, and transport quantum information. The large Hilbert space describing CV phase space allows one to encode information such that recovery from errors is possible, thereby providing competitive alternatives to encoding into a register of qubits. This presentation overviews CV quantum error-correcting codes, from theoretical capabilities to experimental realizations.
