Paper Abstract

The quantum limit for resolution in force measurement using active interferometric optical transducer of displacement is proved to be less than the standard quantum limit (SQL) if one measures not the phase but a specially chosen quadrature amplitude in the output wave, squeezed by a mechanism of ponderomotive nonlinearity. Consideration of two types of active transducer having three-level atoms gain and parametric gain is given. Noises of spontaneous emission, fluctuations due to losses in mirrors and effect of radiative friction are taken into account.
