We show that the dip in the intensity line shape of a single-mode laser can appear at definite experimental conditions in cases both of nonhomogeneously broadened line as well as homogeneously broadened line of the atomic transition. In both cases the dip is explained by the nonlinear character of the phenomenon. The saturation of the population difference of the involved atomic energy levels has its maximum in the vicinity of the line center. Therefore the saturation of the amplification is at maximum near the atomic line center, and, as a consequence, the lasing power is reduced.
