Abstract

By accounting for both the speckle nature of the coherent noise and the depletion of the pump beam in a semilinear oscillator, we show that the buildup of phase conjugation from the noise level is characterized by a buildup time. The dependence of the buildup time on the noise level is in good agreement with experimental results.
