Susskind–Glogower coherent states, whose Fock expansion coefficients include Bessel functions, have recently attracted considerable attention for their optical properties. Nevertheless, identity resolution is still an open question, which is an essential mathematical property that defines an overcomplete basis in the Fock space and allows a coherent state quantization map. In this regard, the modified Susskind–Glogower coherent states have been introduced as an alternative family of states that resolve the identity resolution. In this paper, the quantization map related to the modified Susskind–Glogower coherent states is exploited, which naturally leads to a particular representation of the su(1,1) Lie algebra in its discrete series. The latter provides evidence about further generalizations of coherent states, built from the Susskind–Glogower ones by extending the indices of the Bessel functions of the first kind and, alternatively, by employing the modified Bessel functions of the second kind. In this form, the new families of Susskind–Glogower-I and Susskind–Glogower-II coherent states are introduced. The corresponding quantization maps are constructed so that they lead to general representations of elements of the su(1,1) and su(2) Lie algebras as generators of the SU(1, 1) and SU(2) unitary irreducible representations, respectively. For completeness, the optical properties related to the new families of coherent states are explored and compared with respect to some well-known optical states.
