Femtosecond quadrature-squeezed light generation in CdSe at 1.55 mum.

Abstract:
We generated pulsed quadrature-squeezed light by cross-phase modulation in single-crystal hexagonal CdSe at wavelengths of 1.4 to 1.55mum . We measured 0.4-dB squeezing (0.7 dB is inferred at the crystal) with 100-fs laser pulses. The wavelength and the intensity dependence, as well as variations in the local oscillator configuration, are examined. At higher intensities squeezing is shown to deteriorate owing to competing nonlinear processes.
