Abstract

This Letter is the first report of the observation of amplified reflection and self-oscillation produced by degenerate optical four-wave mixing by using a resonantly enhanced Kerr nonlinearity in atomic sodium vapor. Phase-conjugated reflected waves with intensities 100 times greater than input-signal intensities were achieved with only 40-kW/cm2 pump intensity.
