Abstract

The characterization of coherent states as the quantum states that split into two uncorrelated beams is considered. The characterization leads to the study of coherent states at finite temperature-thermal coherent states (TCS's). These TCS's are defined within the formalism of thermo field dynamics (TFD). TFD allows a generalization of the uncertainty relation that accounts for both thermal and quantum fluctuations. The TCS is shown to be a minimal state for the generalized uncertainty relation.
