Abstract

Measurements of the photon-number fluctuations in a single-mode dye jet laser are compared with solutions of the equations of motion with colored pumping and white spontaneous-emission noise. A search of parameter space for best agreement between theory and experiment shows that the experimental results cannot be well modeled by a theory with white pumping noise, although the correlation time is small, but can be modeled with colored noise. This emphasizes the importance of not treating the pumping fluctuations as δ correlated, even for time-independent quantities.
