New Developments in Optical Phase Conjugation
Optical phase conjugation has ceased to be regarded as merely a scientifically interesting laboratory phenomenon. It is now being invoked as a tool to deal with various laser problems that do not yield easily to more conventional solutions. Thus, in addition to the continuing research on the fundamental mechanisms in various methods of phase conjugation, activities at the Los Alamos National Laboratory have also addressed development issues of more practical relevance. For a tutorial introduction to the concepts of optical phase conjugation we direct the reader to references  and , whereas more details on various subtopics can also be found in .
