Abstract

A consistent and conceptually simple derivation is given for the basic integral equation of the scattered field in the presence of a phase-conjugate mirror characterized by a constant amplitude-reflection coefficient. This integral equation is exact, except for the fact that the incident field is assumed to contain no evanescent components and the effects of the evanescent waves are neglected at the phase-conjugate mirror.

  2. The fact that the complex amplitude reflectivity µ of the PCM is assumed to be a constant represents, of course, an idealization. In practice µ depends, in general, both on the position across the PCM and on the direction of propagation of the wave incident onto the PCM. Although these generalizations could be readily incorporated into the analysis, we choose to exclude them here so as not to obscure the main ideas of the paper.

  11. We emphasize that the effects of the evanescent waves are neglected only in the generation of the conjugate field Uc(r) by the PCM in the plane z = z1 [cf. Eq. (15)]. The evanescent waves are included in the scattered field U(s)(r) given by Eq. (17), and the effects of these waves are therefore taken into account, for example, in the half-space R [compare with Eq. (12)] and in all multiple-scattering processes inside the scattering medium.
