Abstract

We consider the generation of squeezed light in the process of degenerate downconversion in a quasi-phase-matched periodically poled nonlinear medium. The squeezing in the downconverted mode is analyzed for different orders of quasi-phase matching and for phase-mismatch parameter as well as varying pump input powers. The results show that a high degree of squeezing and high powers can be obtained for well-matched interactions.
