Observation of squeezing using cascaded nonlinearity
Laboratoire Kastler Brossel UPMC, Case 74 75252 Paris Cedex 05, France
Accepted: 2 September 1997
We have observed that the pump beam reflected by a triply resonant optical parametric oscillator, after a cascaded second-order nonlinear interaction in the crystal, is significantly squeezed. The maximum measured squeezing in our device is 30% (output beam squeezing inferred: 48%). The direction of the noise ellipse depends on the cavity detuning and can be adjusted from intensity squeezing to phase squeezing.
