Paper Abstract

We consider polarization-squeezed (PS) light generation in anisotropic homogeneous Kerr medium. The fluctuations of the Stokes parameter either S2 or S3 are suppressed in PS light. The influence of initial light depolarization on the fluctuation suppression of the Stokes parameters is analyzed. We show the possibility to transform PS light into light with sub-Poissonian statistics by linear conversion (phase plate and analyzer). The quantum properties of the SH generated by frequency doubling of the PS light are investigated.
