Title: On-chip generation of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen states with arbitrary symmetry

We experimentally demonstrate a method for integrated-optical generation of two-photon Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen states featuring arbitrary symmetries. In our setting, we employ detuned directional couplers to impose a freely tailorable phase between the two modes of the state. Our results allow to mimic the quantum random walk statistics of bosons, fermions, and anyons, particles with fractional exchange statistics.
