Abstract
We have studied quantum effects in a system governed by the spatial nonlinear Schrodinger equation derived for a two beams interaction in a quadratic nonlinear material. For a quadratic nonlinear material it has recently been demonstrated [2, 3] that, under suitable conditions, in the interaction between the fundamental and the second harmonic field, the fundamental field propagation can be described as a solution of a nonlinear Schroedinger equation, given in terms of spatial solitons [4,5]. In this work we are interested at the quantum properties of the fundamental beam in this kind of interaction. We use a quantum field description [1] where the spatial variable of propagation z plays the role of time in the standard quantum theory, and we apply it to the case of a strong plane wave that can be described as a classical field propagating through the nonlinear medium in the z-direction. We assume TE polarizations for all the monochromatics fields involved into the interaction in a type I material.
