Paper Abstract

Phase-conjugate feedback affects a laser in ways which are fundamentally different than conventional feedback. Notably, when the laser oscillates in more than one longitudinal mode, phase-conjugate feedback initiates a novel mode-coupling mechanism which can even lead to mode locking behavior. This paper explores these mode-coupling effects and also summarizes the simularities and differences between the two types of feedback.
