Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally that the effects of nonreciprocal elements or media that would otherwise spoil phase conjugation can be neutralized by using a tandem combination of a modal- and polarization-scrambling fiber and a phase-conjugate mirror. A theoretical model to explain the experimental results is presented.
