Abstract

A phase-conjugate signal has been obtained in SF6 with a peak reflectivity of 1.2 × 10−3 by using a cw CO2 laser operating on the P(16) line. The degenerate four-wave mixing spectrum exhibits a Doppler-free structure with 2-MHz resolution. When the reflectivity spectrum is compared with the saturated-absorption spectrum, matching peaks in the reflectivity spectrum are found over an 80-MHz bandwidth.
