Theoretical and experimental results of investigations into the quantum noise of multimode laser radiation are nsidered. h feasibility of generating light with  photon-number-squeezed (sub-Poissonian) photon distribution b  multimode laser with  homogeneously broadened line is nlyzed. h conditions of noisy and noiseless (regular) pumping are considered. Photon-number fluctuations of the net laser radiation summed over all generated modes are calculated in the approximation of equidistant equal modes, as are photon-number fluctuations in n individual mode inside and outside the resonator. Output-radiation noise spectra and photon-number fluctuations are calculated for solid-state (neodymium glass, Nd:YAG) and semiconductor lasers. Theoretical results are compared with  number of experimental data obtained for semiconductor lasers in recent years.
