A Heuristic Analysis of Quantum Noise Quenching in the Two-Photon Correlated Emission Laser Academic Article uri icon


  • We demonstrate how the twophoton correlated emission laser (CEL) can be understood from a simple physical picture in a quasirigorous fashion. We use semiclassical arguments to derive correct expressions for the phase and amplitude diffusion in a simple way. We then illustrate how noise suppression is achieved in the twophoton CEL.
