(Short description)
The subject of this book is the new field of squeezing in quantum fields. This general area includes all types of systems in which quantum fluctuations are reduced below those in the normal vacuum state. The book covers the main currently known techniques of generating squeezed photon fields, together with some treatment of matter field squeezing. Both theory and experiments are covered, together with applications to communications and measurement. The chapters of the book are written by the foremost international experts in the field, and their coverage extends from general introductory material, to the most recent developments.

From the reviews:

"The book is divided into three parts. The first three chapters are on the physics of quantum fluctuations, the next three on the techniques of generating squeezed states, and the last four on applications. ... Each chapter is written by experts in the field covering the most recent developments. ... As there is a growing interest in quantum information theory and a current lack of material in this area, this is a timely publication. Many researchers and postgraduate students will benefit from this work." (J. Hartley, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45 (5), 2004)

"This book shows how squeezing provides a window into the mysterious quantum world ... . provides a very solid theoretical background to many aspects of the field, and elucidates the origin of quantum effects clearly. I appreciated the ability of the book to tie rigorous theoretical development into a theory encompassing the practical limitations of experimental work. It should form an important reference for anyone working in the field or for those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the quantum nature of our world." (J N Walford, The Physicist, Vol. 41 (5), September/October, 2004)
