Angular momentum intelligent states are defined to satisfy ΔJ xΔJy = 1/2|Jz| They also share with angular momentum coherent states a number of features. In this paper we describe and illustrate the squeezing properties of angular momentum intelligent states. We analyze three classes of state: never squeezed, always squeezed and sometimes squeezed. Our conclusions are applicable for a broad range of definitions of the standard quantum limit for angular momentum systems.
