Paper Abstract

The aim of this paper is to try to find out the possibility of reducing the photon number noise in an optically pumped three-level atomic system. Consider a three-level atomic system. The atomic transition between level 1 and level 3 is forbidden. Each atom is incoherently excited to upper level 3 from level 1, transits to level 1 through intermediate level 2, and emits photons at frequency (omega) 1 and (omega) 2. We place the atoms with the above feature into an oscillator and may obtain two coherent light beams, whose frequency are (omega) 1 and (omega) 2, respectively. There may be some correlation between these two light beams. We make one beam to control the pump source by a feedback loop and expect to reduce the noise of photon number of the other beam.
