    A new class of instabilities is reported in a semiconductor laser which is coupled to an external optical cavity with an intracavity Fabry-Perot etalon. Power spectra of the laser suggest periodic oscillation and its subharmonic modulations. The calculated results, using the van der Pol equation...
