Interacting laser beams in a resonant medium. Academic Article uri icon


  • For potential applications in scanning and measurement, we consider two interacting laser beams in an active nonlinear medium. The nonlinear medium generates two new beams at the same frequency and in directions different from the incident beams. The Kerr effect is used as a means of phase matching in the isotropic medium.
