The authors report on the separation of single longitudinal modes from the mode-locked program spectrum of a 300-GHz monolithic colliding pulse mode-locked (CPM) semiconductor quantum-well laser. Experimentally, the selected longitudinal mode shows a 10-dB reduction of low-frequency relative intensity noise compared to that of the selected mode from the same laser in continuous-wave (CW) lasing conditions. The strong phase coherence among the passively mode-locked longitudinal modes reduces the partition noise of the unlocked CW laser.<>
