Non-classical properties of even circular states


Here we investigate some general properties of the so-called even circular state (ECS) produced in a cavity, consisting of a superposition of N coherent states |αk (k = 1, 2, . . . , N) with the same |αk |. Several special states may emerge from this kind of superposition: in particular, when 1 (e|αk |2/N)N 4N a Fock state with N quanta is produced, whereas when (e|αk |2/N)N 1 one gets a vacuum state. We analyse the atomic scattering the ECSs produce when two-level atoms go through the cavity and also the non-classical depth of these states.
