What is it about?



Boson sampling is a type of quantum computing that focuses on sampling from a distribution created by identical bosons. Traditional methods use photons, but this research uses ultracold atoms in a 2D optical lattice. Unlike classical methods, exact simulation of boson sampling is infeasible, which has driven experimental progress.
