Abstract

The quantum noise properties of laser diodes became a topic of interest essentially since the first development of such devices. A particular recent focus for such activities was created by work, directed at generating bus-Poissonian or squeezed light using such devices. Although there was a significant early success in experimentally demonstrating appreciable noise squeezing using laser diodes it was found that not all laser diode designs were suitable for this purpose. This paper aims to examine means for removing this limitation by the use of a one-dimensional array of SHR laser diodes.
