Spontaneous emission is a major source of noise in semiconductor lasers. The noise phenomena such as relative intensity noise mode-partition noise and laser linewidth are discussed by using the Langevin rate equations. Particular attention is paid to the impact of intensity arid phase noise on the performance of optical communication systems.
