Degenerate four-wave mixing in the presence of nonuniform pump wave fronts

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We derive the set of coupled equations that describes the process of degenerate four-wave mixing in the presence of spatially nonuniform pump-beam wave fronts. We investigate the influence of phase mismatch between plane-wave pump beams on the efficiency and on the fidelity of the phase-conjugation process, and we furnish, in the near-collinear geometry, the expression of the spatial degree of coherence of the phase-conjugate wave in terms of those of the input signal and of the pump beams.
