We propose a novel scheme for generating squeezed states of photon, which scheme is based on a nonadiabatic effect of photons on a two-state system. This is realized in a Josephson tunnel junction weakly coupled with photon fields in an optical cavity. The supercurrent fluctuation is also shown to be affected by its surrounding electromagnetic field as well as by the electronic system.
