Hopf bifurcation inducing lasing without inversion has been analyzed by taking into account the effect of phase fluctuation in the driving field based on a closed three level ladder-type atomic model. It is shown that due to the phase fluctuation of the driving field, the necessary threshold increases significantly. Furthermore the area domain to get lasing without inversion decreases as the driving field's linewidth increases.
