Multidimensional quantum walks can exhibit highly nontrivial topological structure, providing a powerful tool for simulating quantum information and transport systems. We present a flexible implementation of a two-dimensional (2D) optical quantum walk on a lattice, demonstrating a scalable quantum walk on a nontrivial graph structure. We realized a coherent(More)
Quantum optics in combination with integrated optical devices shows great promise for efficient manipulation of single photons. New physical concepts, however, can only be found when these fields truly merge and reciprocally enhance each other. Here we work at the merging point and investigate the physical concept behind a two-coupled-waveguide system with(More)
We introduce the concept of a driven quantum walk. This work is motivated by recent theoretical and experimental progress that combines quantum walks and parametric down-conversion, leading to fundamentally different phenomena. We compare these striking differences by relating the driven quantum walks to the original quantum walk. Next, we illustrate(More)
Boson sampling has emerged as a tool to demonstrate the difference between quantum and classical computers and has piqued the interest of experimentalists and theoreticians. Its main advantage is that it does not require full universal control over the quantum system, which favours current photonic experimental platforms for implementation. However, these(More)
Sampling the distribution of bosons that have undergone a random unitary evolution is strongly believed to be a computationally hard problem. Key to outperforming classical simulations of this task is to increase both the number of input photons and the size of the network. We propose driven boson sampling, in which photons are input within the network(More)
