Formatted Abstract/Summary
Models of intermediate quantum computing are an exciting new avenue for developing devices that can outperform their classical counterparts. BosonSampling—the sampling from a distribution of n photons undergoing some linear-optical process—is a recently developed, and experimentally accessible example of such a task. Here we report our recent experiments, finding BosonSampling to robust, working even with the unavoidable effects of photon loss and non-ideal sources. We discuss its scaling requirements, and what will be required to disprove the Extended Church-Turing thesis, a foundational tenet of modern computer science.
