Single-photon side bands

Ralph, Timothy Cameron; Huntington, Elanor; Symul, Thomas


Single-photon states (and other non-Gaussian states) are typically studied in the time domain. In contrast, continuous-variable Gaussian states such as squeezed states are typically studied at side-band frequencies. Much of modern optical communication technology is also based on side-band techniques. Here we discuss what it means to produce single-photon states at side-band frequencies and propose techniques for producing and analyzing such states.
