Title: Number operator-annihilation operator uncertainty as an alternative of the number-phase uncertainty relation

We consider the number operator-annihilation operator uncertainty as a well behaved alternative of the number-phase uncertainty relation, and examine its properties. We find a formulation in which the bound on the product of uncertainties depends on the expectation value of the particle number. Thus, while the bound is not a constant, it is a quantity that can be easily controlled in many systems. The uncertainty relation allows us to define amplitude squeezing, connecting coherent states to Fock states, without a reference to a phase operator. The uncertainty relation is approximately saturated by number-phase intelligent states.
