Abstract

Most investigations of multipartite entanglement have been concerned with temporal modes of the electromagnetic field and have neglected its spatial structure. We present a simple model which allows us to generate tripartite entanglement between spatial modes by parametric down-conversion with two symmetrically tilted plane waves serving as a pump. The characteristics of this entanglement are investigated. We also discuss the generalization of our scheme to 2 N + 1 partite entanglement using 2 N symmetrically tilted plane pump waves. Another interesting feature is the possibility of entanglement localization in just two spatial modes.
