Quantum Noise Effects in Single-Mode Injection Lasers
Recently, a great, increasingly growing interest has arisen in the field of optical coherent communication systems because of two main factors: first, the great development of the technology of semiconductor materials which has made commercially available injection lasers capable of stable operation in a single longitudinal and transverse mode; second, the well acquired capability of producing single-mode fibers with very low attenuation losses.
