Paper Abstract

Collinear microwave phase conjugation was observed in an artificial Kerr medium consisting of short graphite fibers suspended in a binary liquid mixture. Using an 18 GHz pump beam with up to 20 W continuous power, characterization of the changes in the 94 GHz refractive index were made by interferometry. A nonperturbative method for describing the response of the medium was used to analyze the phase-shift measurements for the static berefringence and the time response as functions of microwave intensity.
