Near-infrared four-wave mixing with gain and self-starting oscillators with photorefractive GaAs.

We report high-reflectivity four-wave mixing in photorefractive GaAs:Cr crystals at 1.06 microm using a nearly degenerate interaction with an externally applied dc electric field (moving-grating recording mode). The highest reflectivities (R approximately 5) are observed for the positive-readout configuration with cross-polarized pump beams. The variation… CONTINUE READING
