Abstract

A new mechanism for producing squeezed states in the third-harmonic field generated in isotropic media is discussed. It is shown that considerable squeezing is obtained if the third-harmonic field is generated by self-squeezed light resulting from a nonlinear propagation process. Analytical formulas describing this novel way of producing squeezed states are derived and illustrated graphically, showing strong correlations of squeezing in the fundamental and the third-harmonic beams.
