Abstract

We demonstrate the operation of a monomode semiconductor laser with a relative intensity noise limited by the shot-noise floor, 156 dB Hz for a typical detected photocurrent of 1 mA , over a large frequency range from 50 MHz to 18 GHz . We achieve direct control of photon lifetime to turn an initially class-B laser into a relaxation-oscillation-free class-A one while preserving strict single-mode operation. Finally, we confirm experimentally that the laser operation in the desired class-A regime allows a dramatic filtering out of the relative intensity noise.
