We use a Fano diagonalization technique to find the eigenmodes of an atom laser consisting of a single-mode atomic cavity that is coherently coupled to the continuum of free space modes. Under very general conditions the system exhibits a single, stationary bound mode. We discuss the properties of this bound mode depending on the system parameters and investigate its effect on the output beam of the atom laser.
