Abstract

We numerically and experimentally demonstrate photonnumber squeezed state generation with a symmetric fiber interferometer in an 800-nm wavelength and compared with an asymmetric fiber interferometer, although photon-number squeezed pulses have been generated only with asymmetric interferometers. Even though we obtain-1.0dB squeezing with an asymmetric fiber interferometer, since perfect spectral phase and intensity matching between displacement and signal pulses are achieved with a symmetric fiber interferometer, we obtain better squeezing of-3.1dB. We also numerically calculate and clarify this scheme's usefulness at a 1.55-μm wavelength.
