    A self-pumped phase conjugate reflectivity of 74.8% is obtained with a suitably cut KNbO3:Fe crystal in a polygonal shape. The design and operation of this self-pumped phase conjugator is described. The build-up time is observed to be dependent on the input power. The phase conjugate nature of...

    We found that the formation of self-pumped phase-conjugate mirrors (SPPCM) in photorefractive Bi[sub 12]TiO[sub 20] crystals under external alternating electric field is accompanied by strong enhancement of spatial subharmonics. This combined formation of the fundamental grating and its spatial...

    Abstract. We report on double-peak thermally tuned reflectivity of optical phase conjugation in InP:Fe under dc fields. A single-pump four-wave mixing geometry generates a phase-conjugate reflectivity up to 6.7% for a pump intensity of 28 mW/cm[sup 2] at 1.32 micro m wavelength. The...

    This paper presents the experimental results of two-wave mixing and self-pumped phase conjugation (SPPC) in barium titanate (BaTiO[sub 3] ) crystals doped with Rh or Ce. It has been shown that the main parameters of SPPC depend very strongly on the concentrations of dopants, the incident angles...

    Abstract. A mutually pumped phase-conjugator (MPPC) consisting of two photorefractive crystals is investigated experimentally at a wavelength of about 807 nm. In addition to a Rh:BaTiO[sub 3]crystal, which is used in a modified bridge configuration tot phase-conjugation, a Co:BaTiO[sub 3]...

    The second order nonlinear optical properties of BaTeMo2O9 were studied by means of Maker fringe technology and the phase matching method. The value and relative sign of the second order nonlinear optical coefficients were obtained, with the largest being d31 = 9.88 pm/V. At 1064 nm, the crystal...

    Abstract. We present a new experimental setup for the optical storage of information via refreshing by inverse seeding (OSIRIS), which allows a sixfold increase of the storage time of holograms in a Ba[sub 0.77]Ca[sub 0.23]TiO[sub 3] crystal (BCT). The setup consists of two four-wave mixing...
