Quantum Trigonometry of the Noh-Fougères-Mandel Experiments

Abstract

We investigate the quantum trigonometry of a single mode of a harmonic oscillator using the concept of the phase propensity and the associated operational operators. This approach is motivated by an operational approach to phase fluctuations presented in the recent measurements of the phase properties of optical fields by Noh, Fougères, and Mandel (NFM).
