Abstract

We report the generation of a continuous-wave squeezed vacuum resonant on the Rb D 1 line ( 795 nm ) using periodically poled K Ti O P O 4 (PPKTP) crystals. With a frequency doubler and an optical parametric oscillator based on PPKTP crystals, we observed a squeezing level of 2.75 ± 0.14 dB and an antisqueezing level of + 7.00 ± 0.13 dB . This system could be utilized for demonstrating storage and retrieval of the squeezed vacuum, which is important for the ultraprecise measurement of atomic spins as well as quantum information processing.
