Quantum-noise quenching in the correlated spontaneous-emission laser as a multiplicative noise process. II. Rigorous analysis including amplitude noise. Academic Article uri icon


  • An analytical steady-state distribution for the phase difference in a correlated spontaneous-emission laser (CEL) is derived based on the amplitude and phase equations of a CEL. This distribution is shown to be an excellent approximation to that obtained from a numerical simulation of the complete set of CEL equations. In particular, the effects of amplitude noise on CEL operation are considered and it is shown that fluctuations in the relative amplitude are also noise quenched. 1988 The American Physical Society.
