Quantum Noise and Correlations in Resonantly Enhanced Wave Mixing Based on Atomic Coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • We investigate the quantum properties of fields generated by resonantly enhanced wave mixing based on atomic coherence in Raman systems. We show that such a process can be used for generation of pairs of Stokes and anti-Stokes fields with nearly perfect quantum correlations, yielding almost complete (i.e., 100%) squeezing without the use of a cavity. We discuss the extension of the wave mixing interactions into the domain of a few interacting light quanta. 1999 The American Physical Society.
