Abstract

Using a single self-pumped crystal of barium titanate, we demonstrate a method for producing the phase conjugate of an incident wave having arbitrary polarization. Our experimental results show that the phase-conjugate wave produced by this method reproduces both the ellipticity and the helicity of the polarization of the incident wave.
