A theoretical analysis is performed of the quantum noise properties of multi-element laser diode arrays. A general formalism is presented which facilitates the estimation of the quantum noise arising due to cross contamination between lasing modes of the array. By consideration of three-element laser arrays a specific strategy is advanced for effecting quantum noise management in laser diode arrays.
