Abstract: Cluster states are often investigated in the field of quantum information. We consider two photon interference and two photon entanglement in a setup consisting of linear optical elements in which single photons are produced by a quantum dot in a microcavity. We measure correlations between two detectors for different polarizations which we compare with theoretical predictions. Understanding of the predictions and the experimental results should lead to an extension to three or more photon cluster states in the future.
