Abstract

We report on the use of a sodium-seeded flame as an amplifying phase conjugator. The environment is unique in that a number density of 1016 cm−3 is maintained despite a lateral dimension of 1 mm. We combine two of these optically pumped flames to form a phase-conjugate resonator. Finally, we observe oscillation that is due to the action of a single flame and two pump beams.
