Abstract
Injection locking of two laser diodes operating at 681-684 nm with a d ouble phase-conjugate mirror recorded in photorefractive Bi12TiO20 cry stal under an external alternating electric field is studied. It was f ound that there are three different regimes of laser-diode coupling di stinguished by the various coherences of the light emitted by the coup led laser diodes. The ability of the photorefractive double phase-conj ugate mirror to recover the coherence length is experimentally demonst rated. Advantages of photorefractive Bi12TiO20 fiberlike samples over bulk BaTiO3 crystals to record the double phase-conjugate mirror are l isted. (C) 1997 Optical Society of America.
