The measurement accuracy of laser precision measurement is mainly limited by optical field noise and various technical noises. After the de-coupling technical noises, quantum noise becomes the main factor limiting the measurement accuracy. Based on the intensity noise characteristics of solid-state single-frequency lasers, the main sources of intensity noise and their influence on the power noise spectrum were described, and three kinds of intensity noise suppression techniques, including traditional DC feedback control, optical AC coupled feedback control and quantum squeezer, were reviewed in this paper. By reviewing the development history of relevant technologies, the current development level and future development trend of intensity noise suppression technology were summarized-the noise suppression scheme combining three technologies is an important approach to solve high sensitivity detection.
