The authors report the observation of the first six subharmonic resonances
of the Rabi frequency in the absorption of a 100% amplitude-modulated laser
beam by a two-level atom. The amplitude-modulated field is formed by
combining two separate CW lasers; one is held fixed in frequency, and the
other, of equal amplitude, is scanned in frequency. The authors present
data and theory for several values of the detuning between the fixed field
and the atomic resonance. The experimental results are in good agreement
