Abstract

We demonstrate a new method of light amplification based on forward four-wave mixing in photorefractive BaTiO 3. A single pump beam of combined (ordinary and extraordinary) polarization can be used for an efficient cw amplification of a signal wave with slightly shifted temporal frequency. A signal wave with an initial power of less than 1  nW is amplified 100 times in a 3.2-mm-thick sample.
