  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
We propose quantum-mechanical model of a beam splitter with second-order nonlinearity and show that non-classical features such as squeezing and sub-Poissonian photon statistics of optical fields can be generated in output fundamental and second harmonic modes when we mix coherent light beams via such a nonlinear beam splitter.

Direct manifestations of the quantum nature of light are difficult to find, des­ pite the leading role played by Planck's quantization hypothesis in initiating the development of quantum mechanics.
