DESCRIPTION:Nicolas Menicucci\, University of Sydney\n\nCluster states are
an entangled resource state that enable quantum computing using adaptive m
easurements alone. This is surprising when one considers what this means:
one can quantum compute simply by *looking* at a quantum systems in a part
icular way! The continuous-variable incarnations of these states are simpl
e to make using lasers and can be scaled up with ease. In this talk\, I wi
ll describe the theoretical underpinnings of measurement-based quantum com
putation using continuous-variable systems\, and I will report on their ex
perimental realization\, including the recent demonstration of a 10\,000-m
ode (!) cluster state. Issues related to error correction and fault tolera
nce -- many of which remain open problems -- will also be discussed.
