Introduced initially by Howard
Carmichael and coworkers, the setup below allows one to make measure a
correlation between the electric field and intensity of the source. It
can also be viewed as a wave-particle correlator, or as a conditoned
field measurement (conditioned on detection of a photon). So far
analytic results exist for a cavity QED system, an OPO, an OPO with a
two-level atom, and cavity QED system with 1-d quantized center or mass
