Abstract

We have measured for the first time the squeezing bandwidth of a semiconductor laser as a function of pump current and temperature. The squeezing bandwidth may be due to a combination of Coulomb blockade effects, and the reciprocal interaction between the photon field and electron number (relaxation oscillation).
