Abstract : The goal of the research is to achieve interferometric phase measurements below the standard quantum limit, the shot noise limit, by using squeezed quantum states of light. The squeezing is accomplished in single mode polarizations maintaining optical fibers. Using fiber components, the light thus squeezed can be injected with minimum loss into fiber interferometers (such as a fiber gyro).
