The dynamics of a solid-state laser sustaining the oscillation of the Laguerre-Gaussian TEM*o,l mode is experimentally studied. The results are given of investigations of the existence conditions of self-modulation, chaotic, frequency locking, and self-pulsing regimes. From the observations of the locking phenomena of the first order family occurs as a subcritical bifurcation in a solid-state laser.
