The role of a reservoir in the squeezing effect in a driven coupled-oscillator system was invetigated. In the model, the target harmonic oscillator a was coupled to an auxiliary saturable oscillator b driven by a classical field. The interaction of the coupled oscillators was nonlinear because of the saturability of the oscillator b, and this nonlinearity was the physical origin of the squeezing in this system.
