Paper Abstract

In this work a theory of the four-wave mixing (FWM) is developed in a liquid suspension of transparent microspheres (heterogeneous medium), the nonlinearity of which is caused by the change in the microspheres concentration under the action of the gradient forces in the electromagnetic field of interacting waves. The effect of suppression of four-wave mixing because of the reduction of the resulting components of the gradient forces to zero for microspheres of certain sizes and certain angles of convergence of interacting waves have been predicted. A stationary regime of four wave mixing has been analyzed in the diffusion limit and the conditions of the appearance of parametric generation of a pair of mutually conjugate waves have been determined.
