Multiphoton interference reveals strictly nonclassical phenomena. Its applications range from fundamental tests of quantum mechanics to photonic quantum information processing, where a significant fraction of key experiments achieved so far comes from multiphoton state manipulation. The progress, both theoretical and experimental, of this rapidly advancing research is reviewed. The emphasis is given to the creation of photonic entanglement of various forms, tests of the completeness of quantum…

Revival of Quantum Interference by Modulating the Biphotons.
TLDR
By modulating the photons' temporal wave packet, the revival of postselected entanglement is observed, which has potential applications in long-distance quantum communication and linear optical quantum computation, particularly for quantum repeaters and large cluster states.

Exploration of multiphoton entangled states by using weak nonlinearities
TLDR
The error probabilities induced by homodyne measurement are analyzed and show that the maximal error probability can be made small enough even when the number of photons is large, implying that the present scheme is quite tractable and it is possible to produce entangled states involving a large number of photon numbers.
