Using a nominally undoped crystal of photorefractive BaTiO3, we have examined self-pumped phase conjugation at near-infrared wavelengths. We report reflectivities as high as 74% between 720 and 800 nm. As expected, the crystal response time increases significantly at longer wavelengths. We believe that this value of reflectivity in the self-pumped geometry is the highest reported to date for this range of wavelengths with the use of a nominally undoped crystal.
