Eigenstates of the phase operator la Dirac for a two-mode field Academic Article uri icon


  • The eigenstates of the phase operator are calculated for a two-mode radiation field subject to the condition that these be also the eigenstates of the operator corresponding to the difference q of the number of photons in the two modes. The phase distribution associated with such states has the form 1 [1 + F sin2 ( 2)]. In the special case q = 0, these eigenstates become identical to the two-mode squeezed vacuum. 1993.
