Paper Abstract

Optical phase conjugation by degenerate and spin-resonant four-wave mixing in Hg1-xCdxTe has been studied. Three mechanisms have been identified: conduction band nonparabolicity, electron spin rewcance, and photoexcited plasma. Values of the third order nonlinear susceptibility χ(3) for x-values of 0.216 - 0.232 range from 10-8 - 10-7 esu (conduction band nonnarabolicity) through 10-4 esu (electron suin resonance) to rb3 x 10-2 esu (photo-excited plasma). These measurements are of use in evaluating the potential of Hgl_xCdxTe for correction of wavefront distortions by optical phase conjugation.
