Abstract

We discuss the use of photorefractive four-wave mixing for coupling and locking of lasers. A demonstration of the double phase-conjugate mirror and the semilinear passive phase-conjugate mirror, pumped simultaneously by different lasers, is described. Cleanup of a distorted laser beam using another local laser and configurations for the phase locking of lasers are discussed.
