Abstract

We study in detail the effect of the anticorrelation of the polarization modes on the total intensity noise of a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser. We show that small polarization-dependent losses can greatly improve the total intensity noise, and we determine and experimentally demonstrate the conditions necessary for optimal intensity noise reduction.
