Abstract : This is the Final report on a program to study the properties of phase conjugate optical resonators. Laser oscillation was achieved using both atomic sodium and photorefractive BaTi03 in four-wave mixing geometry as a phase conjugate resonator. Spectral and transverse mode characteristics were measured. A self-pumped phase conjugate mirror was also used in an oscillator and a computer code developed to model power output and transverse mode profile. Aberration correction was demonstrated. (Author)
