Multi-Photon Quantum Interference covers the phenomena of quantum interference through the multi-photon effects of photon correlation. The authorâ€™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.
