Transition to an oscillator for double phase-conjugate mirror
Summary form only given. Some of the novel quantified characteristics for double phase conjugate mirrors are analysed including the effects of the nonlinearity on the critical dynamics (approach to saturation) and on the spatial distribution of the grating (large scale distortion of the beams and conjugation fidelity) and sensitivity to noise (seeding). The approach used also clarifies the question of linear instability and predicts a new transition to an oscillatory regime.
