Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We show that the nonlinear frequency mixing of photons can be used to overcome the fundamental blackbody limit, and to introduce nontrivial statistics (g(2)≠2) and biphoton intensity correlations (at distinct frequencies) in thermal radiation.
