We propose and experimentally demonstrate a two-photon four-qubit cluster state generator using linear optics and a single polarization-entangled photon-pair source based on spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC). Our novel scheme provides greater design flexibility compared to previous schemes that rely on hyperentanglement.
