Abstract

The main features of quantum mechanics reside into interference deriving from the superposition of different quantum objects. The Hong-Ou-Mandel effect is a purely quantum phenomenon deriving from the interference of two photons. It is a consequence of the bosonic nature of light and can be observed when two identical photons impinge simultaneously on a two-port balanced beam splitter and, as a result, both are forced to exit from the same port. While current quantum optical technology enables two-photon interference both in bulk and integrated systems, simultaneous interference of more than two particles, leading to richer quantum phenomena, is still a challenging task. © 2013 IEEE.
