Abstract

Behavior of the conjugate and specular reflections from a phase-conjugate resonator is studied in the presence of phase-conjugate mirror noise. Phase and amplitude fluctuations are described by a sudden-jump model. Analytical results show that the system is partially self-compensating for the phase noise. Numerical simulations of amplitude fluctuations reveal strong deviations from the coherent case when amplitude correlation time is long and the resonator is close to instability threshold.
