Paper Abstract

A quantum optical device performing linear transformation of photon creation and annihilation operators is proposed. The action of such a linear transformer on three types of states: Fock state, squeezed and correlated state, and Schrodinger cat state is studied. The two-mode beam splitter is considered as a simple example of a linear transformer. It is shown that the beam splitter can transform subpoissonian Gaussian light into superpoissonian (and vice versa).
