Stabilization of the photorefractive double phase-conjugate mirror in BaTiO3

Abstract : Photorefractive simple and double phase-conjugate mirrors very often exhibit strong instabilities in their reflectivities. One of their possible origins can be the competition between phase conjugation and its generating process, photorefractive beam fanning. However, by suitably choosing the incident beam widths and directions, we suppressed this competition and replaced it by the enhancement of each process by the other. This technique allows to obtain a double phase-conjugate mirror in BaTiO3 that establishes itself in seconds for beam intensities on the order of the tenth of a milliwatt. The reflectivities reached are on the order of 30% and stable within 3% for hours.
