Visibility index as a simple measure of the quantum effects in light propagation through a nonlinear dispersive element Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown how first order interference can be used to study the nonclassical effects in the propagation of light through a dispersive element. The quantum nature of light makes the visibility index smaller than unity. 1989.
