We study the generation of squeezed photons by coupled resonators with phase-conjugate mirrors. A large amount of squeezing is obtained by an interference effect between them even when optical nonlinearities are small. Squeezing can be controlled by the phase difference of the laser beams pumping the phase-conjugate mirrors. This is analogous to the Josephson supercurrent.
