Abstract
Based on general physical arguments we derive a new general criterion for higher order antibunching. We show that the degree of antibunching increases with the order of antibunched photon states. We use the criterion for the case of the interaction of an intense electromagnetic field with a (k-1)-th order nonlinear medium. For a third order nonlinear and nonabsorbing medium with inversion symmetry, we show that the degree of antibunching can be tuned by changing the phase of the external field.
