Abstract : The goal of the research is the generation of squeezed radiation for use in interferometric measurements, via the third order Kerr nonlinearity in fibers and employing fiber components. This method of generating squeezed radiation obviates the need for frequency doubling required in parametric processes using the second order nonlinearity.
