Quantum Noise Reduction II

  • Miguel Orszag
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


In this chapter we will cover the area of theory and relevant experiments in the generation of squeezed states. Prior to discussing the parametric oscillator, we offer a brief introduction to non-linear optics and input-output theory. Finally, we will discuss other important experiments that generate squeezed states.
