We report 5.1 dB of squeezing from a fiber interferometer pumped with a 1-GHz pulse source that successfully eliminates guided-acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering in significant frequency regimes. The pulse source is a diode-pumped Nd:YLF laser actively mode locked at 1.314 μm. The squeezing results are consistent with the limits imposed by the Gaussian pulse shape and the detection quantum efficiency.
