The laser cooling of atoms is a result of the combined effect of Doppler shift, light shift and polarization gradient. These are the phenomena which generally introduce frequency shift and uncertainty. However, they combine gainfully in realizing laser cooling and trapping of the atoms. In this paper we discuss the laser cooling of atoms in the presence of the squeezed light with the decay of atomic dipole moment into noisy quadrature. We show that the higher decay rate of the atomic dipole moment into the noisy quadrature, which leads to decrease in the signal to noise ratio, may contribute in realizing larger cooling force vis-a-vis with coherent laser light.
