We report on an experimental investigation of a single-photon source based on a quantum interference effect first demonstrated by Koashi, Matsuoka, and Hirano [Phys. Rev. A 53, 3621 (1996)]. For certain types of measurement-based quantum information processing applications this technique may be useful as a high rate, but random, source of single photons.
