Abstract

We have studied the polarization properties of phase conjugation by degenerate four-wave mixing resonantly enhanced by the sodium 3S1/2 → 6S1/2 two-photon-allowed transition. As predicted by third-order theories, this interaction leads to simultaneous conjugation of the optical wave front and state of polarization (vector phase conjugation) when the pump intensities are sufficiently weak. However, qualitatively different polarization behavior is observed for pump intensities near or above the two-photon saturation intensity.
