Paper Abstract

The quantum noise limits of a semiconductor laser with dispersive loss are examined theoretically and experimentally. Using optical feedback from Cs vapor as a dispersive loss element we demonstrate almost 6 orders of magnitude reduction in the linewidth, to a 44 Hz level, and 1.9 dB amplitude noise squeezing below the standard quantum noise limit.
