Elimination of excess photon noise from fibre super-radiant sources
P.R.Morkel, R.I.Laming, H.O.Edwards & D.N.Payne
High-power incoherent sources such as ELEDs and rare-earth-doped superfluorescence sources exhibit excess photon noise which limits their application in sensors such as the fibre-optic gyro. We show that this form of noise can be eliminated by a compensation scheme.
