Abstract

The efficiency of optooptical light deflection by nondegenerate four-wave mixing can be increased significantly by placing the grating in a resonant cavity. Theory and experiment are presented for linear and ring cavities. Efficiency improvement by an order of magnitude is predicted, and improvements by a factor of 5.6 have been demonstrated.
