Abstract
We investigate both codirectional and contradirectional nonlinear couplers composed of two nonlinear waveguides operating by second- and third-order nonlinear optical processes. We take into account possible mismatches inside the waveguides and between them. Quantum statistical characteristics, such as photon number distribution, its factorial moments, quadrature and integrated intensity variances and quadrature uncertainty product demonstrate generation and transmission of nonclassical light in nonlinear couplers. Incident beams are assumed to be coherent, squeezed and mixed with external noise. Nonclassical behavior of beams generated by the nonlinear waveguides can be transferred to linear waveguides and controlled by linear signal and by linear and nonlinear mismatches. In the contradirectional regime of propagation asymptotic nonclassical states can be obtained.
