To achieve more robust computation and communication processes with quantum information, quantum error correction codes were invented to protect the information from noise and decoherence. The codes consist of specifically designed, contrived quantum states, yet some of them have become hot topics in condensed matter physics, an area which is traditionally grounded in measurable phenomena in real world solid state materials. This talk will explain how these error correction codes reveal possible novel physics phenomena and inspire the exploration of new phases in condensed matter system. At the same time, connecting them to real experimental system provides a path forward to realizing the robust information processing protocols.
