Coherent states for four-mode systems in quantum optics. Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduce and study the properties of a class of coherent states for the group SU(1,1)SU(1,1) and derive explicit expressions for these using the Clebsch-Gordan algebra for the SU(1,1) group. We also derive a phase space representation based on pair coherent states rather than the standard harmonic-oscillator coherent states. We discuss the utility of the resulting "bi-pair coherent states" in the context of four-mode interactions in quantum optics. 1995 The American Physical Society.
