Paper Abstract

Degenerate four-wave mixing (DPW) has found a variety of applications in optics such as phase conjugation, adaptive optics, image processing and interferometryl. These applications involve the spatial properties of this nonlinear process. O'MEARA et alt have reviewed other applications exploiting the temporal properties of DFWM, such as pulse reshaping, optical gating, temporal convolution and compensation for pulse spreading effects. In this paper, we describe the following two processes based on the spatiotemporal properties of DFWM: conversion of frequency modulated to amplitude modulated signal; conversion of a short laser pulse in a continuous laser beam.
