Squeezed states of light are generated by the process of second-harmonic conversion within an optical cavity resonant at both fundamental and harmonic frequencies. Observations of squeezing are made by analyzing the spectral density of photocurrent fluctuations produced by the total field reflected from the nonlinear cavity. Reductions in photocurrent noise of 13% relative to the coherent-state or shot-noise level are achieved for frequency offsets near 4 MHz.
