Abstract

We demonstrate that the large FM noise of a semiconductor laser can be combined with a squeezed AM noise spectrum to make a sub-shot-noise, FM-noise-based spectroscopic measurement. In particular, we probe the spectrum of magneto-optically trapped and cooled rubidium atoms using the FM noise on squeezed AM background noise. The natural absorption line as well as a stimulated Raman transition are clearly visible in the FM-to-AM converted noise even though the signal is below the classical shot-noise level.
