coherent photonics

Generation of strongly sub-Poissonian light from a coherent input using a waveguide network with engineered nonlinear loss. The two top (magenta) waveguides are the signal modes, that are coupled only through the reservoir, which is realised as an array of evanescently coupled waveguides (blue). We refer to the linear arrangement of waveguides (blue) implementing a common bath as "tail". The waveguides are laser inscribed in a bulk glass with high third order nonlinearity.
Phase space insets show contours of the Wigner function of coherent states (left, input) and photon number squeezed states (right, output).
