A mode-locked soliton laser, experiencing group-velocity dispersion and self-phase modulation via a nonlinear Kerr medium in an antiresonant ring interferometer reflector is analyzed in the linearized regime. It is demonstrated that this laser can produce an ultrashort squeezed vacuum from the open port of the antiresonant ring interferometer and that the spectral linewidth of the soliton output is broadened via the coupling of amplitude and phase in the Kerr medium.
