Abstract

We analyze the phase-conjugate reflectivity and the amplification property of cross-polarized four-wave mixing with a photorefractive BaTiO3 crystal in consideration of the pump-beam depletion. The coupled-wave equations of cross-polarized four-wave mixing with ordinary writing beams and an extraordinary reading beam are derived and solved with the grating-integral method. The results of calculations of the reflectivity and the amplification factors will be compared with the result under the undepleted-pumps approximation. In addition, to achieve high conversion efficiency, the optimum conditions for the intensity ratio and the angle configurations of the probe and pump beams are also discussed.
