Abstract

We generalize the scheme of conventional temporal imaging to quantum temporal imaging viable for nonclassical states of light. As an example, we apply our scheme to temporally broadband squeezed light and demonstrate a possibility of its noiseless magnification. In particular, we show that one can magnify by a given factor the coherence time of squeezed light and match it to the response time of the photodetector. This feature opens new possibilities for practical applications of temporally broadband squeezed light in quantum optics and quantum information.
