The simultaneous action of a rf perturbation between the Zeeman sublevels of an atomic transition, which is also producing laser oscillation, is considered. The complete Hamiltonian of the system is made time-independent by appropriate unitary transformations, and the corresponding steady-state solutions of the density matrix are deduced using appropriate rate constants. Results for stationary atoms indicate a dependence of the threshold for oscillation on the rf perturbation, together with rf resonance effects which increase the laser intensity some two or three times for suitable transitions. The increase in intensity is greatest for rf perturbations between the upper Zeeman levels, which also have the smaller resonance width, because of the longer lifetimes involved. Such effects will be small unless there is a reasonable difference in the populations of the Zeeman levels in the absence of the rf perturbation. Appropriate laser transitions, cavity tuning, and polarization characteristics must thus be used to obtain maximum effect, and examples are given. The atomic motion is included in the theory in an approximate way, and similar conclusions are derived as regards the variations of laser intensity. However, no dependence of the threshold on the rf perturbation is then indicated, the former being determined by the relatively large Doppler width. Finally, some consideration is given to cases where more than one laser transition occurs between the Zeeman levels.
