Abstract

We report the experimental generation of squeezed light at 852 nm, locked on the Cesium D 2 line. 50% of noise reduction down to 50 kHz has been obtained with a doubly resonant optical parametric oscillator operating below threshold, using a periodically-poled KTP crystal. This light is directly utilizable with Cesium atomic ensembles for quantum networking applications.

Fig. 1.

Experimental Setup. A Ti:sapphire laser locked on resonance with the Cesium D2 line is frequency doubled. The second harmonic is then used to pump a doubly resonant optical parametric oscillator below threshold. The seed beam is used for cavity alignment and blocked during measurements. HWP: Half-wave plate. EOM: electro-optic phase modulator. PZT: piezo-electric transducer. PBS: polarizing beam-splitter.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Normalized noise variance for the squeezed and anti-squeezed quadratures, from 1 MHz to 5 MHz. The inset gives the noise variance at 1.5 MHz while scanning the phase of the local oscillator. The resolution bandwidth is set to 100 kHz and the video bandwidth to 100 Hz.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Normalized noise variance up to 500 kHz after correction of the electronic noise. The resolution bandwidth is set to 30 kHz and the video bandwidth to 36 Hz.
