Abstract

We report the observation of self-pumped phase conjugation by means of internal reflection in a photorefractive medium produced by a series of intense nanosecond pulses. Nanosecond pulses from a YAG laser ranging in intensity from 9 × 104 to 9 × 105 W/cm2 were used. The crystal was rhodium-doped strontium barium niobate. The conjugate signal began with the first pulse, and the time to reach 63% of its equilibrium value scaled as I−2. The equilibrium reflectivity was 29%. A similar cw experiment with the 514-nm line of an argon laser produced a response time that scaled as I−1.1.
