Abstract

A Michelson interferometer whose signal arm is terminated by a self-pumped BaTiO3 phase conjugator records phase-change distributions in times short compared with the conjugator rewrite time that correspond quantitatively to a single (not a double) traversal of the phase disturbance. The proffered explanation, which is experimentally substantiated, also places limitations on the pictorial accuracy of intensity-change novelty filters.
