We calculate the oscillation conditions and the eigen-frequencies for phase-conjugating-resonator-normal-resonator coupled optical systems. With an eye toward applications to interferometry, we choose specific examples for which it is shown that the conditions for oscillation and the eigenfrequencies depend on the normal-resonator path length. The examples include both linear displacement and rotation sensing (Sagnac) resonant interferometers. Our results suggest that if the distortion-correcting and self-aligning properties of the phase-conjugating resonator are retained in the more complicated system, then these hybrid resonators may offer some advantages over their conventional counterparts.
