We propose that more than one spatial fundamental Gaussian mode may occur in concentric and confocal resonators under persisting nonlinear effect. Extensively studying the influence of the resonator's parameters in a Kerr-lens mode-locked resonator, pitchfork bifurcation results in more symmetrical configurations, and saddle-node bifurcation appears as the symmetry being broken. From the properties of bifurcation, we suggest that the equal-arm and near-confocal resonator is suitable for the emergence of bistability in Kerr-lens mode-locked lasers.
