We describe a recently introduced single-step traveling-wave quantum state engineering scheme using the one-dimensional coherent-state representation introduced by Janszky. In this representation, the photon number expansion of the output state is derived in a compact formula that is advantageous for numerical optimization. Using this formula, we determine several sets of physically controllable parameters of the scheme yielding various nonclassical target states.
