Squeezed Lasers

A simple mechanism whereby lasers can "lase" squeezed light has recently been discovered. Unlike previous schemes, the pump does not have to be regular; rather, the atoms themselves regularize the pumping process. This is significant because optical measurements are ultimately limited in their sensitivity by the light's quantum mechanical noise.
