Abstract

We propose a scheme in which coincidences, measured at the outputs of a passive multiport are used to reconstruct the quantum state of a single mode light field. We show that the coefficients of a finite superposition of Fock states can be extracted from a set of recorded data. Especially the measurement of the photon statistics seems to be feasible with realistic photodetectors.
