We present a plane-wave theory of nondegenerate oscillation in the linear passive (self-pumped) phase-conjugate mirror (PPCM). The circumstances under which the plane-wave theory permits spontaneous nondegenerate oscillation in this and other PPCM’s are discussed.

The appropriateness of this name is now in doubt, so for the moment we will adopt its colloquial name, in honor of the cat that assisted in its initial demonstration. [CrossRef] [PubMed]
