In the present paper a class of nonlinear squeezed vacuum and first order excited squeezed states are introduced. Under conditions on the non-linearity function, the first order excited squeezed states are realizations of the SU(1,1) group. However, when the condition of the nonlinear function being unitary is removed, these states are defined as eigenstates of certain operators. Some of the properties of these states are investigated for the case of trapped ions. The normalized second-order correlation function, the phase properties, the quasiprobability distribution function and the position distribution of the nonlinear squeezed vacuum and first order excited squeezed states are discussed.
