Abstract

We discuss the polarization-resolved intensity noise characteristics of a transverse single-mode vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). Measurements by a sensitivity-enhanced lock-in amplifier detection scheme yield only an imperfect anticorrelation between the strong and the weak orthogonally polarized fundamental modes. Yet the total emission shows amplitude squeezing of 0.4 dB below the shot-noise level. Unlike for transverse two-mode emission, a perfect anticorrelation between the two polarization modes is not necessary for generation of amplitude-squeezed emission in a transverse single-mode VCSEL, in agreement with theoretical predictions.
