In response to a comment on our Letter [Opt. Lett. 25, 132 (2000)], we reiterate the distinction between the spectral inversion and the spectral phase conjugation processing techniques. The former achieves time reversal of the complex amplitude waveform, whereas the latter performs time reversal of the real electric field.
