Abstract

We investigate temporal imaging of broadband squeezed light by four-wave-mixing. We consider two possible imaging configurations: phase-conjugating (PC) and phase-preserving (PP). Both of these configurations have been successfully used for temporal imaging of classical temporal waveforms. We demonstrate that for quantum temporal imaging, precisely, temporal imaging of broadband squeezed light, these two schemes have very different behavior: the PC configuration deteriorates squeezing, while the PP configuration leaves it intact. These results are very important for the applications of temporal imaging for quantum communications and quantum information processing.
