Abstract

Multiphoton interference is an essential component of quantum technologies such as quantum computation, quantum communication, and quantum metrology. We introduce a sorting-based approach to multiphoton interference and examine its implications for quantum metrology and teleportation. Our examination reveals an extension of the seminal Hong–Ou–Mandel effect whose resultant state is the highly desired multiphoton NOON state. Application of the above perspective to entangled photons reveals a novel approach to quantum qudit teleportation.
