Title: Improving squeezing purity from a KNbO3 crystal by temperature tuning
Published: May 04, 2008
Abstract: We show a method to increase the purity of a squeezed state generated by a femtosecond laser and down-conversion crystal. The method relies on temperature tuning the down- and up-converting crystals, which changes the spatial and spectral output mode of the down-converter to match the local oscillator.
