Abstract

Quantum noise in a model of singly resonant frequency doubling, including phase mismatch and driving in the harmonic mode, is analyzed. The use of a nonlinear normalization allows us to disentangle in the spectra the squeezing induced by the system dynamics from the deleterious effect of the noise coming from the various inputs. The physical insight gained permits the elaboration of general criteria to optimize noise-suppression performance. The subsequent application to the specific system here addressed reveals excellent squeezing behavior. In particular, unlimited degrees of squeezing in the harmonic mode are possible by means of an adequate phase mismatch or driving in the harmonic mode. This is in contrast with the standard phase-matched second-harmonic generation in which the squeezing is limited to 1/9. The applicability of the model, as well as possible experimental implementations, is extensively discussed.
