Abstract

Qubits traveling through a quantum channel often interact with the environment which causes errors at the receiving end. These errors are often indistinguishable from errors caused by an eavesdropper and therefore must be corrected before a quantum key exchange protocol proceeds forward. Logical qubits are often used in order to make error correction possible. In this paper, we apply logical qubits to detect collective rotational errors and discuss how they can be corrected in the context of three-stage quantum key distribution protocol.
