Abstract

We have experimentally demonstrated a cw dye laser incorporating a phase-conjugate mirror (PCM). The mirror was generated by using four-wave mixing in sodium. The unique bandwidth and pump–probe detuning properties of such a PCM permitted the first reported demonstration of the c/4L spaced paired half-axial modes. In addition, the aberration correction ability is demonstrated.

  13. This derivation assumed a saturation that is due to bleaching. If instead we assume saturation arising from pump depletion resulting from large RPCM we obtain the formula above but multiplied by G02R1.
