Title: Quantum well in a microcavity with injected squeezed vacuum

A quantum well with a single exciton mode in a microcavity driven by squeezed vacuum is studied in the low exciton density regime. By solving the quantum Langevin equations, we study the intensity, spectrum, and intensity correlation function for the fluorescent light. An expression for the Q function of the field inside the cavity is derived from the solutions of the quantum Langevin equations. Using the Q function, the intracavity photon number distribution and the quadrature fluctuations for both the cavity and fluorescent fields are studied. Several interesting and new effects due to squeezed vacuum are found.
