Quantum interference control

  1. Aug 19, 2013 #1
    Hi all, I am a student and I am trying to understand how to achieve carrier phase stabilization for frequency comb using quantum interference. I found out that the interference leads to generation of current but I can't seem to find the derivation of the equations for the current generation. Hopefully someone can refer me to a book that gives the details of the phenomena.

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a bit vague. What exactly do you intend to use?

    One could use things like mu/2mu referencing (see citation in Optics Letters, Vol. 30, Issue 7, pp. 735-737 (2005)) or similar methods (e.g. the "inverse" of Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 147403 (2004)). Generally speaking, almost always some interference between probability amplitudes for single-photon and two photon processes is used as it is phase sensitive.

    If you want a book, the one on femtosecond optical frequency comb technology by Jun Ye and Steve Cundiff might be helpful.
