Abstract

I show that the nonlinear mixing of an intense pump and a weak probe of frequencies ω2 and ω2 − Ω, where Ω is the pump’s generalized Rabi frequency, leads to the spontaneous generation of the radiation at the submultiple of the Rabi frequency, that is, at ω2 + (Ω/2). I prove that such radiation at ω2 + (Ω/2) has strong squeezing properties that are nearly unaffected by the quantum noise of the medium.
