Exact solution to the degenerate four-wave mixing in reflection geometry in photorefractive media Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A method for exact solution of the stationary holographic degenerate four-wave mixing in reflection geometry in photorefractive media is presented. The effects of pump depletion and light absorption in the nonlinear dynamic medium are rigorously taken into account. Numerical steps in the procedure are reduced to the solution of one simple nonlinear first-order differential equation, or are absent altogether when the equation is linearized, or for the case of no absorption. The method of solution is applicable to other wave-mixing geometries as well. © 1985 The American Physical Society.
