Abstract

We observe polarization-resolved coherent beam combination through nondegenerate two-wave mixing in water–glycerol suspensions of shaped polytetrafluoroethylene microparticles. Coherent energy transfer that arises from translational and orientational moving index gratings was observed. A theory for beam combination through nondegenerate two-wave mixing is presented and found to be in excellent agreement with these measurements.
