Abstract

Multigrating optical phase conjugation in photorefractive media in the case of pump depletion and for arbitrary relationships among different coupling strengths is studied numerically. The role of linear absorption as well as the role of all the coupling mechanisms and their competition in the wave mixing process is examined. It is found that multigrating operation with accidental values of coupling constants leads to a decrease in the efficiency of the process. It is also shown that the presence of absorption, which is in principle detrimental, sometimes exerts a beneficial influence on multigrating phase conjugation.
