Abstract

Amplitude-squeezed states are generated from a room-temperature semiconductor laser using a combination of pump suppression and dispersive optical feedback. The laser amplitude noise is found to be sensitive to extremely weak feedback levels, of the order of 10^(-8) of the output power. a reduction of the noise from 2% below the standard quantum limit (SQL) under free-running conditions to 19% below the SQL under optimal feedback conditions is obtained. A single mode theory is presented but is found to be inadequate in explaining the measured dependence of the noise reduction on the feedback power. A multimode theory including asymmetrical cross-mode nonlinear gain is proposed to explain this discrepancy.
