Paper Abstract

Cancellation of excess noise of quantum optical solitons is based on successive passage of a soliton through an optical fiber with positive nonlinearity and negative dispersion and then through a near-resonant two-level systems with negative nonlinearity and positive dispersion. An evolution of a quantum fluctuation in one medium will be reversed in the other. In such a way, the unwanted excess noise due to self- phase modulation in optical fibers can be fully suppressed leading to a radical improvement of accuracy of quantum nondemolition measurements of optical solitons. A detailed discussion of the compensation method with thorough numerical estimations for existing resonant media is provided.
