Abstract

We demonstrate an externally pumped phase conjugator that preserves polarization on reflection and does not exhibit the frequency shift present in self-pumped phase conjugators. Our results show that for linearly polarized incident light the phase-conjugate reflection reproduces the angle of polarization to within the experimental error of 1%. For circularly polarized incident light, our results show that the helicity of polarization is preserved on reflection.
