Paper Abstract

We present a method to achieve phase conjugation based on saturable-gain degenerate four- wave mixing in the laser medium itself. Experimental and theoretical investigations show that phase conjugate reflectivities and efficiencies higher than 100% can be achieved with such an interaction. High conjugate-reflectivity at (lambda) equals 1.06 micrometers is demonstrated in conventional flash-pumped Nd:YAG amplifiers and in compact diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 amplifiers.
