Abstract
We present high precision intensity noise measurements of Quantum Dot Superluminescent LEDs and lasers emitting at 1.3μm. For the QD-SLEDs we investigate the intensity noise behavior and identify the relevant noise parameters by comparing the experimental results to theoretical calculations. We find an Excess Noise behavior due to amplified spontaneous emission, the dominant origin of noise. The investigation of the spectrally resolved emission enables further characterization of the noise properties. The influence of a resonator on the noise behavior is discussed for QD-Lasers. The noise of the laser is compared to the SLED's, and shows strong deviation from the Excess Noise character above threshold.
