Continuous-wave (cw) squeezed states of light have applications in sensing, metrology and secure communication. In recent decades their efficient generation has been based on parametric down-conversion, which requires pumping by externally generated pump light of twice the optical frequency. Currently, there is immense effort in miniaturizing squeezed-light sources for chip-integration. Designs that require just a single input wavelength are favored since they offer an easier realization. Here… Expand

Driven quadrature and spin squeezing in a cavity-coupled ensemble of two-level states
The generated magnitude of quadrature squeezing in a cavity-coupled ensemble, which is continuously driven using a coherent off-axis field, is theoretically explored. Using a truncated set ofExpand


Continuous-wave nonclassical light with gigahertz squeezing bandwidth.
A nonclassical cw laser field at the telecommunication wavelength of 1550 nm is produced, which showed squeezing over a bandwidth of more than 2 GHz, and the squeezing strength was possibly limited by thermal lensing inside the nonlinear crystal. Expand
13  dB squeezed vacuum states at 1550  nm from 12  mW external pump power at 775  nm.
This work investigates the second-harmonic pump power requirement for parametric generation of continuous-wave squeezed vacuum states at 1550 nm in a state-of-the-art doubly resonant standing-wave periodically poled potassium titanyl phosphate cavity setup and expects that optimizing the cavity coupler reflectivity will reduce the external pump power to 3 mW, without reducing the squeeze factor.

We have used an ultralow threshold continuous-wave optical parametric oscillator ~OPO! to reduce the quantum fluctuations of the reflected pump beam below the shot noise limit. The OPO consisted of aExpand
Squeezed states of light and their applications in laser interferometers
