Abstract

The polarization-dependent photon-number squeezing of 1.5 dB from a grating feedback locking quantum-well laser in a cryostat has been experimentally detected with a balanced homodyne detector including an imperfect nonpolarized-beam splitter. The great influence of the birefringence induced at low temperature on the determination of the shot-noise-limit and on the detection of photon-number squeezing is discussed in detail. Birefringence is compensated for by insertion of a half-wave plate of adjustable inclination into the output beam before the polarization components of the optical system.
