Abstract

Phase conjugation has been obtained with pump powers as low as 0.5 mW on the 546.1-nm line of atomic mercury. Collisional processes that oppose the effects of optical pumping sustain the signal. Line splittings observed in the Doppler regime are compared with theory. Reflectivities agree with those obtained from a model that includes pump absorption.
