Generation of Squeezed Coherent States via a Free-Electron Laser Academic Article uri icon


  • Spontaneous radiation from a magnetic wiggler or undulator as used in a free-electron laser is shown to be in a squeezed state for a low-density electron beam. It is pointed out that the problem is formally analogous to radiation from a Josephson junction. 1982 The American Physical Society.
