Abstract

We investigate statistical properties of photon-subtracted squeezed vacuum (PSSV) in a thermal environment with average thermal photon number n¯ and dissipative coefficient κ by deriving the analytical expressions of the density operator and the Wigner function (WF). The normalization of m-PSSV is proved to be the m-order Lagendre polynomials. Time evolution of the photocount distribution is also related to Lagendre polynomials. The tomogram of PSSV is calculated by using the intermediate coordinate-momentum representation. Especially, the nonclassicality is discussed by virtue of the negativity of WF. It is found that the WF is always negative for all squeezing parameters λ if κt<12ln(2n¯+2)(2n¯+1) for the single-PSSV.
