Quantum Light Squeezing and Amplification

Caption: Berkeley Lab researchers directly observed quantum optical effects -- amplification and ponderomotive squeezing -- in an optomechanical system. Here the yellow/red regions show amplification, the blue regions show squeezing. On the left is the data, on the right is the theoretical prediction in the absence of noise.
