# ONLINE COLLOQUIUM: "Squeezed Light in a Nutshell" by Sebastian Steinlechner (Maastricht University)

Friday, 5 June 2020 from to (Europe/Amsterdam)
at Nikhef
 Description This colloquium will be online only: https://zoom.us/my/nikhefcolloquium Squeezed light has become an integral part of gravitational wave detectors, where it increases the sensitivity to beyond the shot-noise level. The question why and how this works is however often shrouded in a bit of mystery. Here I will try to explain the very basics of squeezed light: the idea behind it, how it is produced, how it helps in interferometry, and where the challenges lie.
