Abstract

A new type of mutually pumped phase conjugator with a rainbow configuration has been demonstrated experimentally in cerium-doped barium titanate crystal that uses pulsed beams with a pulse width of 3.0 ns and a repetition rate of 40 Hz at a wavelength of 532 nm. The highest phase-conjugate reflectivity was ~24%. The dependence of the phase-conjugate reflectivity on the incident angle and distance, as well as the grating formation time for achieving 1 − e−1 of equilibrium reflectivity, has been measured.
