Abstract:

The use of the Raman induced phase conjugate technique RIPC is used both to obtain strong Raman signals and to measure relaxation times in liquids and solids using picosecond laser pulses. A Sagnac interferometer switch SIS with an optial nonlinear material in its loop has been constructed to perform digital optical logic. A model using statistical electrodynamic techniques has been developed to investigate photon echo in intrinsic direct transition semiconductor materials. A new time domain phase conjugate autocorrelator has been developed.
