Abstract: Multipartite entanglement is at the heart of many quantum information processing tasks. Unlike bipartite case, multipartite entangled states fall into inequivalent classes such as GHZ, Cluster, W and Dicke and a state in one class cannot be converted to a state in another class via local operations and classical communications. What is more, several tasks require a state of a specific size and from a specific class. Therefore generation of each multipartite entangled state is a crucial step in quantum technologies. Efficient preparation of GHZ and Cluster states has been achieved but due to their sophisticated structure, this is not the case for W and Dicke states. In this talk we present our recent findings (in particular [1-3]) for efficient preparation of large scale polarization based entangled photonic W states.
