Interferences in Parametric Interactions Driven by Quantized Fields

We report interferences in the quantum fluctuations of the output of a parametric amplifier when the cavity is driven by a quantized field at the signal frequency. The interferences depend on the phase fluctuations of the input quantized field and result in splitting of the spectrum of the output, and thus the recent observation [H. Ma et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 233601 (2005)] of interferences in the classical domain have a very interesting counterpart in the quantum domain. The interferences
