A theory of phase conjugation in asymmetric materials that allow a phase shift between the grating and the light-interference pattern is developed. We find that when this phase is nonzero, maximum phase-conjugate reflectivity occurs for unequal pump intensities. The conditions for self-oscillation are studied.
