    We show how classical light can be used to simulate a nonclassical quantum process. Specially modulated optical waveguides were utilized to emulate two-mode squeezed vacuum states as the light amplitudes in our arrays correspond to the photon number distribution of the squeezed states. In our experiments demonstrate a transition from photon number growth to periodic Bloch oscillations for increased phase mismatch.
