The effect of losses on the quantumnoise cancellation in the SU(1,1) interferometer
Abstract
Quantumnoise cancellation (QNC) is an effective method to control the noise of the quantum system, which reduces or even eliminates the noise of the quantum systems by utilizing destructive interference in the quantum system. However, QNC can be extremely dependent on the losses inside the system. In this letter, we experimentally and theoretically study how the losses can affect the QNC in the SU(1,1) interferometer. We find that losses in the different arms inside the SU(1,1) interferometer can have different effects on the QNC in the output fields from the SU(1,1) interferometer. And the QNC in the SU(1,1) interferometer can almost be insensitive to the losses in some cases. Our findings may find its potential applications in the quantum noise control.

The 'optical springs' regime of the signalrecycled configuration of laser interferometric gravitationalwave detectors is analyzed taking into account optical losses in the interferometer arm cavities. This regime allows one to obtain sensitivity better than the standard quantum limits both for a free test mass and for a conventional harmonic oscillator. The optical losses restrict the gain in sensitivity and achievable signaltonoise ratio. Nevertheless, for parameter values planned for the Advanced LIGO gravitationalwave detector, this restriction is insignificant.

Limiting characteristics of a superconducting quantum interferometer. II. Signaltonoise ratio
In the approximation of small fluctuations, the spectral density of intrinsic thermal noise limiting the maximal sensitivity of a constantcurrent SQUID is found in the lowfrequency region. The dependence of the signaltonoise ratio on the SQUID parameters and operating conditions of an interferometer with lowfrequency magnetic flux modulation is studied. Estimates are given for the smallest detectable magnetic flux corresponding to optimal operating conditions of a SQUID. 
Quantummechanical noise in an interferometer
The interferometers now being developed to detect gravitational waves work by measuring the relative positions of widely separated masses. Two fundamental sources of quantummechanical noise determine the sensitivity of such an interferometer: (i) fluctuations in number of output photons (photoncounting error) and (ii) fluctuations in radiation pressure on the masses (radiationpressure error). Because of the low power of available continuouswave lasers, the sensitivity of currently planned interferometers will be limited by photoncounting error. This paper presents an analysis of the two types of quantummechanical noise, and it proposes a new technique: the ''squeezedstate'' technique: that allows one to decrease themore » 
Quantum noise in differentialtype gravitationalwave interferometer and signal recycling
There exists the standard quantum limit (SQL), derived from Heisenberg's uncertainty relation, in the sensitivity of laser interferometer gravitationalwave (GW) detectors. However, in the context of a full quantummechanical approach, SQL can be overcome using the correlation of shot noise and radiationpressure noise. So far, signal recycling, which is one of the methods to overcome SQL, is considered only in a recombinedtype interferometer such as Advanced LIGO, LCGT, and GEO600. In this paper, we investigated quantum noise and the possibility of signal recycling in a differentialtype interferometer. As a result, we found that signal recycling is possible and creates atmore » 
Quantum noise of a MichelsonSagnac interferometer with a translucent mechanical oscillator
Quantum fluctuations in the radiation pressure of light can excite stochastic motions of mechanical oscillators thereby realizing a linear quantum optomechanical coupling. When performing a precise measurement of the position of an oscillator, this coupling results in quantum radiation pressure noise. Up to now this effect has not been observed yet. Generally speaking, the strength of radiation pressure noise increases when the effective mass of the oscillator is decreased or when the power of the reflected light is increased. Recently, extremely light SiN membranes ({approx_equal}100 ng) with high mechanical Q values at room temperature ({>=}10{sup 6}) have attracted attention asmore »
