We observe the polarization squeezing in the mixture of a two mode squeezed vacuum and a simple coherent light through a linear polarization beam splitter. Squeezed vacuum not being squeezed in polarization, generates polarization squeezed light when superposed with coherent light. All the three Stokes parameters of the light produced on the output port of polarization beam splitter are found to be squeezed and squeezing factor also depends upon the parameters of coherent light.

Large polarization squeezing in non-degenerate parametric amplification of coherent radiation

Polarization squeezing is shown to occur in non-degenerate parametric amplification of coherent light and the degree of squeezing at interaction time T can be as large as 1 − e-2T. This gives 86.4%

Polarization squeezing of intense pulses with a fiber-optic Sagnac interferometer

We report on the generation of polarization squeezing of intense, short light pulses using an asymmetric fiber-optic Sagnac interferometer. The Kerr nonlinearity of the fiber is exploited to produce

Polarization squeezing and continuous-variable polarization entanglement

A concept of polarization entanglement for continuous variables is introduced. For this purpose the Stokes-parameter operators and the associated Poincare sphere, which describe the quantum-optical

Quantum theory of two-mode interactions in optically anisotropic media with cubic nonlinearities: Generation of quadrature- and polarization-squeezed light

A quantum theory is derived for the propagation of two electromagnetic waves in an anisotropic medium with a cubic nonlinearity. In general, the dynamics are described by a Hamiltonian that

Polarization squeezing and nonclassical properties of light

We formulate polarization uncertainty relations and polarization squeezing criteria in a SU(2) invariant manner. In this formulation the SU(2) coherent states are the only minimum uncertainty states.

Polarization squeezing in degenerate parametric amplification of coherent light

We study polarization squeezing of a light beam initially in the coherent state using the nonlinear interaction Hamiltonian H = k(âx†2 + â x2). For the degree of polarization squeezing, we use a
