Paper Abstract

Fluctuations in the laser light arise due to the quantum nature of the electromagnetic field in the laser cavity as well as due to environmental fluctuations such as pump noise. The mathematical tool for describing the noisy laser light is the laser Fokker-Planck equation, which we solve in terms of matrix continued fractions. Physical quantities such as moments and spectral densities are related to solutions of the Fokker-Planck equation.
