The phase-conjugate resonator (PGR) shown in Fig. 1 is studied with a 3-D propagation code. The resonator consists of a spatial filter, an aberrator, a gain medium, and an ideal conjugator. Modes of the resonator are obtained as a function of the size of the phase aberration, the size of the spatial filter aperture, and the Fresnel number.
