Paper Abstract

The results of theoretical and experimental investigations into four-wave mixing in microresonators with resonant and thermal nonlinearities are presented. Theoretical models of dynamically-induced optical gratings have been derived in two cases of the light beams interaction: when a nonlinear medium is incorporated into Fabry-Perot interferometer and for the off-cavity configuration. Experimental realization of intracavity four-wave mixing performed using ethanol solution of Rodamine 6G as a nonlinear medium. It is shown that the use of nonlinear interferometer increases significantly an efficiency of dynamic optical gratings. The potentialities for obtaining of high efficiency conversion of optical information owing the spectroscopic properties of multilevel resonant media are discussed.
