Abstract

The greater confinement of light that is possible in photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) leads to greater effective nonlinearity, which promises to yield greater quantum squeezing than is possible in standard optical fiber. However, experimental work to date has not achieved improvements over standard fiber. We present a comprehensive numerical investigation of polarization squeezing in PCF in a Sagnac configuration. By including loss, a noninstantaneous Raman response, excess phase-noise, second- and third-order dispersion, and self-steepening, the simulations are able to identify the physical factors that limit current PCF squeezing experiments.
