We propose a simple and reliable method for engineering a tunable Werner state and realize it experimentally. The whole setup mainly includes a parametric down-conversion source and a controllable depolarization channel which consists of a Sagnac-like interferometer and some complete dephasing operations. The generated Werner states are characterized by quantum tomography, and very high concurrences and state fidelities can be achieved.
