Phase transfer in optical phase conjugation Academic Article uri icon


  • Phase variations during a phase-conjugation process are considered in detail, following our own method of analytical solution of the degenerate four-wave mixing including pump depletion and arbitrary phase mismatch between the light interference and the refractive-index gratings. Closed-form expressions are obtained for the phase transfer, and some apparent misconceptions concerning phase changes in optical phase conjugation are discussed. © 1988 The American Physical Society.
