In current experiments studying cw optical-wavefront conjugation by degenerate four-wave mixing, the effects of atomic motion are not negligible. I summarize a calculation, which includes such effects from the beginning, of the small-signal phase-conjugate-reflection coefficient for both Doppler-broadened and homogeneously broadened resonant transitions.
