Dynamics of homogeneously broadened lasers:
Higher-order bichromatic states of operation

Lloyd W. Hillman, Jerzy Krasinski, Karl Koch, and C. R. Stroud, Jr.

JOSA B 2, 211 (1985).


A theory is presented that describes a series of bichromatic states of an ideal homogeneously broadened laser. These states are produced when the laser is pumped far above threshold so that the intracavity field is strong enough to overcome damping and produce Rabi oscillations of the atomic inversion. The two-frequency laser field is amplitude modulated at a frequency that may be either the Rabi frequency or a subharmonic of it. The theoretical predictions are compared qualitatively with recent experimental results.
