Paper Abstract

We report the first demonstration of uv phase conjugation. Using a 15 psec, 2660 Å pulse, 0.1% conjugate reflectivities were obtained via degenerate four-wave mixing in 1-mm samples of CS2 mixtures. While pure CS2 did not exhibit the effect, dilution in several uv transmitting solvents opened up a concentration-tunable (2450 Å - 2850 Å) spectral window, allowing the optical Kerr effect to be utilized. Weaker phase conjugation at 2660 Å was also observed in other Kerr media and in saturable absorber media.
