The energy spectra and photon transfer dynamics of a unit kagome cell is being explored by using a flexible numerical framework. A projected-entangled pair state (PEPS) ansatz to the many-photon wave function allows us to gain a detailed understanding of the effects of undesirable disorder in fabricating well-controlled and scalable photonic quantum simulators. The correlation functions associated with the propagation of two-photon excitations reveal intriguing interference patterns peculiar to the kagome geometry. Our results justify the use of the proposed PEPS technique for addressing the role of disorder in such quantum simulators and promises sophisticated numerical machinery for yet further explorations of the scalability of the resulting kagome arrays.
