The experimental study of the dynamics of an empty coherent semilinear photorefractive oscillator is reported. It is shown that starting from a certain coupling strength the oscillation occurs with two frequencies shifted symmetrically with respect to the frequency of the pump wave. The threshold of bifurcation in oscillation spectrum depends on pump intensity ratio.
