Abstract

We present the results of amplification of the phase-conjugate reflectivity in an absorptive nonlinear Kerr medium by nondegenerate four-wave mixing. The influence of two-beam coupling on the phase-conjugate signal is observed and analyzed. The frequency domain response of nondegenerate four-wave mixing produces a tunable narrow-band optical filter.
