Abstract

We present a new type of phase-conjugate mirror that is based on an externally driven Fabry–Perot interferometer with intracavity-pumped photorefractive material, which is probed by the signal beam. It is shown theoretically that such a configuration leads to multivalued solutions and possibly to bistability. This configuration also permits optical control of the resonator output and electrical control of the phase-conjugate reflectivity.
