    In quantum optics, it is necessary that the quantum noise resulting from spontaneous emission by the atoms be small. The reduction of absorption in these systems effectively reduces the spontaneous emission. An analysis of quantum noise in three level atoms interacting with 2 light fields demonstrated that a nonlinear phase shift could be imposed on the probe beam due to the signal.
