Abstract

We discuss the characteristics of photon-number squeezing generated in a spectrally filtered Raman Stokes pulse obtained from a nonlinear fiber. The Raman Stokes pulse generated from a microstructure fiber with a femtosecond input laser pulse exhibits far higher photon-number squeezing. We studied the quantum correlation established among the frequency modes in the Raman Stokes pulse by using numerical calculations and experiments. To design an intra-Stokes pulse quantum correlation through the optical nonlinearities of a fiber to obtain higher photon-number squeezing, we shaped the input laser pulse by using a self-learning closed-loop control approach.
