Multiphoton state engineering by heralded interference between single photons and coherent states

Abstract:

We develop a technique for generating multiphoton nonclassical states via interference between coherent and Fock states using quantum catalysis. By modulating the coherent field strength, the number of catalyst photons, and the ratio of the beam splitter upon which they interfere, a wide range of nonclassical phenomena can be created, including squeezing of up to 1.25 dB, antibunched and superbunched photon statistics, and states exhibiting over 90% fidelity to displaced coherent superpositio...
