Abstract: We propose a simple scheme for expanding a polarization-entangled W state. Bymixing a single photon and one of the photons in an n-photon W state at apolarization-dependent beam splitter PDBS, we can obtain an n+1-photon Wstate after post-selection. Our scheme also opens the door for generatingn-photon W states using single photons and linear optics.
