Paper Abstract

A possibility of formation of nonclassical polarization states of light in the case of interaction of two orthogonally polarized modes in a spatio-inhomogeneous nonlinear medium is considered. A procedure of the quantum nondemolition (QND) measurement both of the Stokes parameters and the phase difference of two orthogonally polarized modes of optical field is presented and analyzed for the first time. We also introduce a new nonlinear parameter to describe the light polarization (depolarization) in quantum optics. The general approach to the measurement procedure under study allows to propose the new scheme for the QND-measurement of the angular momentum of atomic system as well.
