Quantized Hamiltonian Curl Forces and Squeezed Light

Strange, Paul (2018) Quantized Hamiltonian Curl Forces and Squeezed Light. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 51 (335303). Article Number 335303. ISSN 1751-8113. E-ISSN 1751-8121. (doi:10.1088/1751-8121/aacecb) (KAR id:68446)


In this paper we discuss quantum curl forces. We present both the classical and

quantum theory of linear curl forces. The quantum theory is shown to reproduce the

classical theory precisely if appropriate combinations of eigenfunctions are chosen. A

series of examples are used to illustrate the theory and to demonstrate its limitations.

Furthermore we are able to point out an analogy between the quantum theory of

curl forces and some of the squeezed light states of quantum optics.
