Abstract

The nonclassical properties of a microcavity confining two quantum wells irradiated by a coherent light source and interacting with a squeezed vacuum reservoir are investigated. By deriving analytical expressions of the intensity power spectrum, the squeezing spectrum, and the second-order correlation function of the output field, we show that the proposed scheme generates perfect squeezing. The obtained results are quite different from the single-quantum-well cavity system where, under the same conditions, squeezing does not exceed 50%, and the transmitted light is bunched. It turns out that the presence of indirect excitons in the cavity strongly modifies the quantum dynamics of the system.
