Abstract

Image retrieval based on degenerate four-wave mixing with a new nonlinear mechanism is demonstrated. An avalanche nonlinearity associated with induced excited-state absorption is exploited to furnish phase conjugation with threshold behavior and potential motion sensitivity. Population pulsations are reported at high intensities.
