Abstract

We present wave-optics calculations of the temporal and spatial evolution from random noise of a double phase-conjugate mirror in photorefractive media that show its image exchange and phase-reversal properties. The calculations show that for values of coupling coefficient times length greater than two the process exhibits excellent conjugation fidelity, behaves as an oscillator, and continues to operate even when the noise required for starting it is set to zero. For values less than two, the double phase-conjugation process exhibits poor fidelity and disappears when the noise is set to zero.
