Abstract

Theoretical investigations of the generation of light with sub-shot-noise intensity fluctuations by vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers are performed with a semiclassical model. From these results we conclude that, because of their dimensions and structure, vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers are promising candidates for generation of amplitude squeezed states. Finally, the influence of internal loss, distributed reflection coefficients, and gain suppression is emphasized and discussed.
