Abstract.

We demonstrate phase conjugation and dynamic holography by degenerate four-wave mixing in a continuous-wave diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser for the first time. A phase-conjugate reflectivity of 1.4% is obtained with a 12 W diode power. The experimental results and the optimizing parameters, such as the cavity mirror reflectivities, are compared with results from a steady-state theoretical analysis.
