The possibility of realizing an optical memory using dynamic refreshment via phase conjugation is discussed. The experimental realization is based on photorefractive barium titanate crystals. Series of refresh cycles are simulated numerically in dependence on several parameters. It is shown that an extension of the storage time can be reached.
