Abstract

In quantum communication systems, quantum error-correcting codes (QECCs) are known to exhibit improved performance with the use of error-free entanglement bits (ebits). In practical situations, ebits inevitably suffer from errors, and as a result, the error-correcting capability of the code is diminished. Previous studies have proposed two different schemes as a solution. One study uses only one QECC to correct errors on the receiver side (i.e., Bob) and sender side (i.e., Alice). The other uses different QECCs on each side. In this paper, we present a method to correct errors on both sides by using single nonadditive entanglement-assisted codeword stabilized quantum error-correcting code (EACWS QECC). We use the property that the number of effective error patterns decreases as much as the number of ebits. This property results in a greater number of logical codewords using the same number of physical qubits.
