We solve the undepleted-pumps photorefractive four-wave mixing equations for the case of orthogonally polarized pump beams. Advantages over the parallel-polarized-pumps case include the potential for reflectivity enhancement and easy isolation of the conjugator from the source. The phase-conjugate reflectivities for both the parallel and orthogonally polarized pump beam cases were measured with a BaTiO3 crystal, and the results support our theoretical predictions.
