Paper Abstract

Mixed metal and metal-coated microparticles have been fabricated and their nonlinear optical properties examined. Degenerate four-wave mixing experiments of the various particles have not shown any enhancement in the phase conjugate signal except for certain thinly coated gold microparticles. These particles had an enhancement up to a factor of ten but their phase conjugate signal was found to be dependent on four photons instead of the usual three. All of the other microparticles showed a normal three photon dependent phase conjugate signal.
