Paper Abstract

Phase-sensitive detection of resonance fluorescence, i.e., allowing the light emitted from an atom which is undergoing Rabi oscillations in free space to interfere with a coherent local oscillator (LO) beam, has drawn considerable attention throughout the history of quantum optics. Recently, phase-sensitive squeezing spectra for single-atom resonance fluorescence were observed for the first time using strongly-driven long-lived atoms. A measurement of phase-sensitive intensity correlations for this system will be presented. Using physical arguments I will construct the phase-sensitive two-time intensity autocorrelation function, and elucidate the role played by quantum fluctuations in phase-dependent resonance fluorescence.
