### Abstract

An unfolded equivalent model is constructed for the round-trip transfer operator of a phase-conjugate mirror (PCM) resonator with a cavity described by complex *ABCD* ray matrix elements, taking into account hard-edge mirror apertures and the possible frequency shift of the wave reflected by the PCM. The treatment makes use of recently developed canonical operator techniques and extends these methods further to incorporate wavelength variation and the effect of apertures.

(7) without loss of generality, even in cases when the input and output planes are immersed in some dielectric medium.
