Wave-particle correlations of non-classical light
We present our investigations of a third order correlation function of the electromagnetic field. The correlation function is subject to Schwartz inequalities and under conditions where third-order moments of the noise are negligible is the Fourier transform of the spectrum of squeezing. We present measurements and calculations of this correlation function in a strongly coupled system of cavity QED that produces non-classical light.
