Two-Photon Interference -- Historical Background and General Remarks -- Quantum State from Parametric Down-Conversion -- Hong-Ou-Mandel Interferometer -- Phase-Independent Two-Photon Interference -- Phase-Dependent Two-Photon Interference: Two-Photon Interferometry -- Interference between a Two-Photon State and~a Coherent State -- Quantum Interference of More Than Two Photons -- Coherence and Multiple Pair Production in~Parametric Down-Conversion -- Quantum Interference with Two Pairs of~Down-Converted Photons -- Temporal Distinguishability of a Multi-Photon State -- Homodyne of a Single-Photon State: A Special Multi-Photon Interference.

Multi-Photon Quantum Interference covers the phenomena of quantum interference through the multi-photon effects of photon correlation. The author’s focus is on the temporal correlation among photons and how it influences the interference effect. Included is discussion of some of the well known multi-photon interference schemes, such as Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer and Franson Interferometer for two-photon system, quantum state teleportation and swapping for four-photon system, and quantum state reconstruction for multi-photon system. A unique feature of the book is its quantitative characterization of photon indistinguishability and its connection to interference effects.
