A photorefractive system based on the combined operation of a strontium barium niobate input amplifier and a self-pumped barium titanate phase-conjugator crystal is presented and analyzed. Amplified real-time phase-conjugate wave-front generation in this system is demonstrated. The system’s ability to all-optically, temporally modulate a weak probe signal and to transmit it back to its source by means of amplified dynamic phase conjugation demonstrates its potential in adaptive optical transmission schemes.
