Coupling of temporal information between two beams is demonstrated using a combination of a multimode fiber and a photorefractive passive phase conjugation mirror. It is shown that the polarization and spatial properties are fully recovered but temporal information is exchanged. The theoretical explanation for these phenomena and possible applications are discussed.
