Though the possibility of two-photon laser action was first discussed over 25 years ago, it has been realized only under a very limited set of circumstances and never, in the optical regime, under continuous-wave conditions. This is unfortunate, since the two-photon laser has been predicted to display a number of interesting properties such as bistable operation, unique threshold behavior, and, in some cases, squeezing.
