Femtosecond parametric excitation of electromagnetic field in a cavity
The method of parametric excitation of electromagnetic waves in a cavity (particularly from the vacuum state) is discussed. Parametric excitation of electromagnetic waves is accomplished creating a dense plasma layer which represents the "mobile" wall of the cavity. The mobile plasma layer can be produced by irradiating a semiconductor film with femtosecond laser pulses. Parametrically excited radiation can be resolved from radiation of another origin by analysis of its squeezing, specific angle distribution, and by time-resolved recording. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
