Abstract

We investigate the spatiotemporal dynamics of self-pumped phase conjugation for superimposed incrementally recorded images. Experimental evidence of time delay in the appearance of phase-conjugation patterns was observed during both the recording and the readout phases.

Incrementally recorded superimposed PC images for a, two and b, six input patterns (input power 220 μW, f = 10 Hz); c, d, corresponding phase-conjugated images obtained by readout of the superimposed PC hologram (input power 2.1 μW). For readout, one pattern belonging to the set of recording patterns was used.
