Paper Abstract

Recently a host of devices have been discovered in which resonators containing nonlinear phase-conjugating elements play a key role.' Examples include improved laser-cavity designs, new types of interferometers, and associative memories for image processing and optical computing. The importance of the phase-conjugate mirrors (PCM) in many of these constructions stems from their inherent capability of real-time distortion correction with fully coherent waves.2 Phase-conjugate resonators also exhibit several nonlinear features such as bistability, self-oscillations, and chaos.
