In this paper we study the zero-frequency intensity noise of a single-mode semiconductor laser. Our fully quantum-mechanical model includes carrier scattering, spectral hole burning and Pauli blocking in the pump. We show that, while scattering processes and spectral hole burning do not affect significantly the laser noise properties, pump blocking can reduce intensity squeezing.
