Abstract : The nonlinear characteristics of a gas laser amplifier operating with two optical frequency signals of arbitrary polarization and having an axial magnetic field is analyzed, using semiclassical radiation theory and a density matrix formalism. Both perturbational solutions, valid for relatively weak intensities and solutions valid for arbitrarily strong fields are obtained for two nonlinear effects: the saturation interaction of the electromagnetic waves, and the generation of combination tones. An arbitrary amount of Doppler broadening is considered throughout. (Author)
