Abstract : Temporal photon correlations and photon count statistics of fluorescence radiation, emitted by an atom in the vicinity of a phase conjugator, are considered. The fluorescent intensity and the twophoton correlation function are expressed in terms of photon emission operators. An explicit evaluation shows their dependence on the phaseconjugate reflectivity of the surface. The variance of the photon count distribution for long counting times is expressed in terms of the Qfactor, which is evaluated as a function of the reflectivity. It appears that for a reflectivity larger than unity, the photon correlation displays antibunching and the statistics is subpoissonian.
