A pentagon-shaped 0°-cut undoped BaTiO3 crystal was used to construct a high-quality self-pumped phase conjugator. The conjugator shows a steady phase-conjugate output with a high reflectivity (as high as ∼68%), a fast rising time, and a large angular range of acceptance. It also shows a good fidelity in the phase-conjugate reconstructed image; the resolution reaches 17 µm.
