The squeeze operator is ubiquitous in quantum optics and can operate on any state. For example, when acting upon the vacuum, the squeezing operator produces the squeezed vacuum state.
nor does it commute with the ladder operators, so one must pay close attention to how the operators are used.
Application of both operators above on the vacuum produces squeezed states:
