ABSTRACT
We demonstrate the enhancement and reduction of the specular reflection from the surface of a photorefractive crystal in the presence of a "pump" beam. The pump beam could be the phase conjugate beam of the input beam or another laser beam. The contribution of the reflection grating is also demonstrated in a 45°-cut crystal. The change of the specular reflection with respect to the intensity ratio of the input beam to the pump beam is measured. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
