A quantum mechanical model is formulated to describe the coupling between pump intensity noise and laser frequency noise in a solid-state laser. The model allows us to investigate the limiting effects of closed-loop stabilization schemes that utilize this coupling. Two schemes are considered: active control of the quadrature phase noise of the laser and active control of the amplitude noise of the laser. We show that the noise of the laser in the actively stabilized quadrature is ultimately...[Show more]
