We present an experimental study of the behavior of photorefractive double phase-conjugate mirrors that illustrates recent theoretical predictions. We observe a sharp fidelity threshold that significantly depends on the specific feature size in the input beams. Furthermore, we find that if the two input beams have unequal intensities the conjugation process is asymmetric and the steady-state fidelity is better on the side of the crystal on which the more-intense beam enters.
