Abstract

We report 5.1 dB of squeezing from a fiber interferometer pumped with a 1-GHz pulse source that successfully eliminates guided-acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering in significant frequency regimes. The pulse source is a diode-pumped Nd:YLF laser actively mode locked at 1.314 μm. The squeezing results are consistent with the limits imposed by the Gaussian pulse shape and the detection quantum efficiency.

Squeezing and antisqueezing magnitudes (filled circles) measured between 80 and 100 kHz for a range of input average powers (maximum was 440 mW) plotted along the analytical predictions with the assumptions of Gaussian pulse shape and 85% detection quantum efficiency (solid curves). The dashed curve is the expected optimum squeezing with perfect detection and ideal local-oscillator phase bias.

Squeezing measured between GAWBS peaks from 10 to 30 MHz with 440 mW of average power. The upper curve is the shot-noise level, and the lower curve is the squeezed-noise level. At frequencies corresponding to GAWBS excitations the squeezing is destroyed.
