Abstract We consider an interferometer powered by laser light (a coherent state) into one input port and ask the following question: what is the best state to inject into the second input port, given a constraint on the mean number of photons this state can carry, in order to optimize the interferometer’s phase sensitivity? This question is the practical question for high-sensitivity interferometry. We answer the question by considering the quantum Cramér-Rao bound for such a setup. The answer is squeezed vacuum.
