Abstract

In a four-wave parametric mixing process in which an output wave is produced that is the phase conjugate of an input wave by interaction with counter-propagating pump waves in a nonlinear refraction medium, the efficiency of the process may be dramatically raised by placing the nonlinear material in a Fabry-Perot interferometer.
