Abstract

A polarization squeezed optical beam can directly interact with the atomic medium, and its measurement is local-oscillator free. Here we have deterministically generated polarization squeezed light at 795 nm. First, a laser at 398 nm is produced from second-harmonic generation with an enhancement cavity. Then a pair of quadrature amplitude squeezed optical fields is prepared with two degenerate optical parameter amplifiers that are pumped by the resulting laser at 398 nm. Finally, the polarization squeezed state of light is generated by combining the above two quadrature amplitude squeezed optical beams on a polarizing beam splitter, and the quantum fluctuations of three Stokes operators simultaneously are reduced 4.0 dB below the quantum noise limit. The polarization squeezing has potential applications in future quantum information networks.
