Abstract

The response of a phase-conjugate mirror (PCM) based on nondegenerate four-wave mixing to an incident photon wave packet has been calculated. In the monochromatic limit the phase-compensating property of the PCM, which makes the response independent of optical path length, is recovered. However, for a photon wave packet of nonzero bandwidth, the response of the PCM varies in a fairly complicated manner with the wave-packet length. In particular, the length of the pulse reflected from the PCM becomes independent of the length of the incident pulse for sufficiently short pulses. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
