Abstract
Any quantum-mechanical system is not isolated. It interacts with its environment (for instance, it interacts with reservoirs). It is known that the decay rate of quantum coherences in phase-sensitive (squeezed) reservoirs can be significantly modified compared to the decay rate in ordinary (phase- insensitive) thermal reservoirs. Depending on phases of the quantum system (field mode) and the squeezed reservoir the decay rate of the quantum coherence can be either enhanced or significantly suppressed. In this paper we study in which way the phase properties of an even coherent state 1 (CS) are changed under the influence of reservoirs.
