Abstract

A novel scheme employing two pulses separated by a short time delay is used to cancel the phase noise from guided-acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering in a fiber ring interferometer. The dual-pulse-excited fiber ring is used to generate squeezed vacuum that, when injected into a measuring Mach–Zehnder interferometer, improves its sensitivity by 3 dB beyond the shot-noise limit.

Experimental configuration of the scheme used to cancel the GAWBS-induced phase noise. Two consecutive pulses delayed by 500 ps enter the fiber ring. One pulse is π phase shifted with respect to the second pulse in the local-oscillator path.

Power spectra from the balanced detection showing cancellation of excess phase noise. In (a) the maximum projected noise is the sum of antisqueezing and the GAWBS; in (b) with the π-phase-modulation scheme 8 dB of GAWBS noise is canceled.

Configuration used for the sub-shot-noise phase measurement at 50 kHz. The reflected pump is partly reused as the measurement probe in a Mach–Zehnder interferometer.

Experimental results demonstrating signal-to-noise ratio improvement beyond the shot-noise limit. (a) The 50-kHz signal with shot noise, (b) the same signal measured with squeezed noise projection for 3-dB improvement, (c) the signal immersed in 12 dB of (excess) antisqueezing noise.
