Abstract

Squeezed-state enhanced audio-frequency signal measurement is crucial for some special applications, such as gravitational wave detection. But generation of squeezed state of light at such frequency is more difficult than that at megahertz-frequency. In this paper we propose an experimental scheme to measure low-frequency phase signal with high-frequency squeezing. To utilize the high-frequency sidebands of the squeezed light, a two-frequency intense laser is applied in the interferometry instead of a single-frequency laser as usual. This technique is in the reach of modern quantum optics technology.
