Abstract
  • The operator annihilating a single quantum of excitation in a bosonic field is one of the cornerstones for the interpretation and prediction of the behavior of the microscopic quantum world. Here we present a systematic experimental study of the effects of single-photon annihilation on some paradigmatic light states. In particular, by demonstrating the invariance of coherent states by this operation, we provide the first direct verification of their definition as eigenstates of the photon annihilation operator.
