Surpassing the classical limit in magic square game with distant quantum dots coupled to optical cavities

Sinan Bugu, Fatih Ozaydin, Tetsuo Kodera
2020 Scientific Reports  
That is, if the referee has information on the physical realization and strategy of the players, he can bias the game through filtered randomness, and increase his winning probability.  ...  Here, we propose a timely and unprecedented experimental setup for quantum computation with quantum dots inside optical cavities, along with ancillary photons for realizing interactions between distant  ...  However, quantum systems are very fragile that any source of imperfections during the process might affect the performance of the task, and the MSG is of no exception.
