    Strongly correlated electron–photon systems

    July 4, 2022

    In a Nature Perspective, we highlight a paradigm based on controlling light–matter interactions that provides a way to manipulate and synthesize strongly correlated quantum matter. Photon-mediated superconductivity, cavity fractional quantum Hall physics and optically driven topological phenomena in low dimensions are among the frontiers discussed in this Perspective.

    Boson Sampling for Generalized Bosons (Video)

    June 23, 2022

    Recent progress on quantum random sampling protocols such as random circuit sampling (interacting) and boson sampling (non-interacting) demonstrate an advantage of quantum information processing. Is there an intermediately interacting regime where the random sampling becomes intractable in a classical setting and becomes feasible on a quantum device? We found that such an intermediately interacting regime could be feasibly utilized by a generalization of current boson sampling protocols.
