Abstract

We propose an adaptive waveform-control approach to optimize photon-number squeezing by the nonlinear fiber spectral filtering method. More than -8dB squeezing of the sech envelope pulse is numerically predicted when the spectral phase is modulated before the pulse is sent to a fiber. The quantum cross correlations of the photon-number fluctuation become uniformly negative when the pulse is optimally shaped.
