The article focuses on the use of squeezed light which is a nonclassical form of light that enabled tracking lipid granules in yeast cells with higher sensitivity by passing through quantum-noise limit and provides a way to develop measurement sensitivity according to M.A. Taylor and colleagues.

It is shown that this complicated ten-parameter group can be regarded as a product of two three-parameter Sp(2) groups. It is shown also that two...
