Quantum noise in spectral filtering of light

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The quantum-theoretical description of the action of a spectral filter is given. It is shown that spectral filtering of light is unavoidably connected with quantum noise, which prevents the spectrometer from performing a Fourier analysis even under ideal conditions. The quantum noise is important in the study of spectral properties of nonclassical light fields, such as spectral squeezing in single-atom resonance fluorescence.
