We experimentally demonstrate the generation of amplitude-squeezed light in the normal-dispersion regime and measure by direct detection 1.7±0.1 dB (33%) and, with correction for linear losses, 2.5±0.2 dB (47%) of noise reduction below the shot-noise level. The dependence of the noise behavior on dispersion is investigated both experimentally and theoretically.
