Squeezed state generation for interferometric gravitational-wave detection

McKenzie, Kirk; Gray, Malcolm; Gossler, Stefan; Lam, Ping Koy; McClelland, David


In this paper we present results demonstrating the development of a squeezed state at sideband frequencies as low as 100 Hz. The squeezed source was generated in a doubly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) operated below threshold. The OPO resonance condition is achieved using the pump field, allowing the OPO to produce a squeezed vacuum state stably. We describe limitations to the experiment and discuss future work.
