Two-mode squeezed light is an effective resource for quantum entanglement and shows a non-classical correlation between each optical mode. We are developing a two-mode squeezed light source to explore the possibility of quantum radar based on the quantum illumination theory. It is expected that the error probability for discrimination of target presence or absence is improved even in a lossy and noisy environment. We are also expecting to apply two-mode squeezed light source to quantum imaging. In this work we generated two-mode squeezed light and verify its quantum entanglement property towards quantum radar and imaging. Firstly we generated two independent single-mode squeezed light beams utilizing two sub-threshold optical parametric oscillators which include periodically-polled potassium titanyl phosphate crystals for the second order nonlinear interaction. Two single-mode squeezed light beams are combined using a half mirror with the relative optical phase of 90◦ between each optical field. Then entangled two-mode squeezed light beams can be generated. We observes correlation variances between quadrature phase amplitudes in entangled two-mode fields by balanced homodyne measurement. Finally we verified quantum entanglement property of two-mode squeezed light source based on Duan’s and Simon’s inseparability criterion.
