Summary form only given. The author reviewed the physics governing field fluctuations in semiconductor lasers, discussed the performance levels that have been achieved in state-of-the-art devices, and tried to forecast future performance levels and novel structures/materials that may be used in these devices. Commercial semiconductor lasers are nearly ideal in terms of their physical properties. Their intensity noise spectra and short-term frequency stability are governed almost exclusively by quantum mechanical effects, and these, in turn, determine system performance levels.
