Abstract

Within the frame of quantized dark-state polaritons in electromagnetically induced transparency media, noise fluctuations in the quadrature components are studied. Squeezed state transfer, quantum correlation, and noise entanglement between probe field and atomic polarization are demonstrated in single- and double-Λ configurations, respectively. Even though a larger degree of the squeezing parameter in the continuous variable helps to establish stronger quantum correlations, the inseparability criterion is satisfied only within a finite range of the squeezing parameter. The results obtained in the present study may be useful for guiding experimental realization of quantum memory devices for applications in quantum information and computation.
