Paper Abstract

Recently there has been some interest in the phase conjugation by the degenerate four-wave mixing in organic materials1) Xanthene dyes such as eosin, erythrosin and fluorescein, having a strong ab-sorption at the wavelengths of an Arion laser and a relatively long lifetime of their triplet states, can generate cw phase conjugate (PC) wave at the intensity of less than 0.5 w/cm2. On the other hand, these dye-doped films have been used as holographic recording materials for self-development because of photochemically induced changes in absorption and/or refractive index under the action of light2),3) We revealed that the xanthene dyes fixed in gelatin can generate simultaneously the PC waves by not only the DFWM process with a fast response time (5msec) but also the holographic process with a slow response time (40 sec) and then can store the light information as a hologram4)'5).
