We exploit the remarkable phenomena of interference in physics together with aspects of number theory in order to factorize large numbers. In particular, the introduction of continuous truncated exponential sums (CTES) allows us to develop a new algorithm for factoring several large numbers by a single measurement of the periodicity of a CTES interferogram. Such an interferogram can be obtained by measuring the interference pattern produced by polychromatic light interacting with an interferometer with variable optical paths.
