ABSTRACT
Because the ring and semilinear passive phase conjugate mirrors use dynamic transmission holograms, they are insensitive to vibration and may be pumped with light of short coherence length or with picosecond mode-locked laser light. Experimental demonstrations of these modes of operation are described.
