Abstract

Nd3+ beta″ alumina is one of a family of potentially useful nonlinear-optical materials based on rare-earth ions substituted into a beta″ alumina host. The saturation intensity of Nd3+ beta″ alumina has been measured to be in the range 16 to 35 kW cm−2. Phase conjugation by degenerate four-wave mixing has been demonstrated, and the phase-conjugate reflectivity has been measured as a function of both laser wavelength and intensity.
