Abstract

We demonstrate a method to reconstruct the joint photon statistics of two or more modes of radiation by using on/off photodetection performed at different quantum efficiencies. The two-mode case is discussed in detail, and experimental results are presented for the bipartite states obtained after a beam splitter fed by a single photon state or a thermal state.
