Abstract

We realize an optical phase-conjugating mirror by coupling a χ ( 2 ) nonlinear crystal, performing difference-frequency generation, with a plane mirror. We use the device to recover the wavefronts upon transmission through multimode fibers and discuss the application to large-core amplifying fibers.
