Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the generation of a squeezed vacuum pulse at 810 nm with a fiber polarization interferometer. During femtosecond laser pulse propagation through an optical fiber in the normal dispersion regime, only self-phase modulation within a short length contributes to pulse squeezing since the laser pulse is immediately broadened. Guided acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering (GAWBS) noise that increases in proportional to the fiber length is also lower with shorter fibers. Consequently, a maximum noise reduction of 2.1 dB (4.8 dB when corrected for losses) is obtained using a 40-cm-long single mode optical fiber.

Open circle plots indicate numerical model calculation of squeezed vacuum generation from (a) 20-cm-long and (b) 40-cm-long optical fibers considering Raman scattering at 800 nm. Solid circle plots correspond to experimental data shown in Fig. 2 except that detection efficiency is corrected.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Plots of experimental data of squeezed vacuum obtained with a 40-cm-long fiber. Open circles show squeezed and anti-squeezed noise without fiber dispersion compensation. Solid circles show squeezed and anti-squeezed noise with fiber dispersion compensation. The detection efficiency is not corrected.
