A series of new stable operating states of a homogeneously broadened laser
have been observed. As the pump power is varied, thresholds are reached
where the power and spectrum of the laser change discontinuously. In these
states the laser simultaneously oscillates at two frequencies whose
separation is given by the Rabi frequency or one of its subharmonics. A
theoretical explanation is given which includes field-induced structure
within the homogeneous line.
