Abstract: We present a self-homodyne tomography experiment for the reconstruction of the Wigner of an amplitude squeezed state generated by a semiconductor laser. We discuss in particular the topic of the reconstruction algorithm and the problem related to the adequate choice of the transformation kernel.
