Abstract

Optical distortion of phase conjugates made in high-gain degenerate, optical parametric amplifiers (OPA) using three-wave mixing is discussed theoretically. The distortion is shown to be less severe than predicted by low-gain formulas. This result applied also to four-wave OPA’s in transmission configurations.
