We propose a technique to probe a quantum state of light in an optical cavity without significantly perturbing the photon field. We minimize the interaction of the probe with the field by arranging a setting where the largest contribution to the transition probability is cancelled. We show that we obtain very good resolution for measuring the photon population difference between any given states the photon field by means of atomic interferometry
