Abstract

If a strong pump wave, with energy that is above threshold for stimulated Brillouin scattering, and a weak probe wave are incident into a nonlinear medium, then it has been shown by others that the reflectivity of the weak probe is equal to the reflectivity of the strong pump and that the probe is phase conjugated provided that the pump is phase conjugated. We present an analysis that predicts an exact equality of the reflectivities and identifies the parametric limitations.
