Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We discuss a novel method of effciently producing multi-photon states using repeated spontaneous parametric downconversion. By attempting downconversion several times, we can pseudo-deterministically add photons to a mode, producing various several-photon states.
