The theory presented shows that light emitted by low-temperature semiconductors under intense optical pumping (with fluctuations at the shot-noise level : SNL) should be amplitude-squeezed down to half the SNL at nonzero frequencies. Amplitude squeezing may be obtained also at zero frequency when spontaneous carrier recombination is significant. It is essential that the optical gain depend on photon emission rate, E. G., as a result of spectral-hole burning. A commuting-number theory that agrees exactly with Quantum Theory for large particle numbers is employed. Comparison with results previously reported for 3-level atom lasers is made.
