Abstract

Studies on some systems in which light interacts with matter are performed from quantum statistical point of view. As a result of these studies a novel effect which can be utilized for detecting squeezed phonons is predicted; detection of non-classical states of Bose type excitations in solids and their classification by Raman correlation spectroscopy are discussed; a new approach to the polarization of light is developed.
