Abstract

The observation of optical phase conjugation in rubidium with equally high gain is presented. The focus was on the 87Rb 52S 1/2 F=2 to 52P 1/2 F=1 transition, corresponding to 0 on the frequency axis. It is shown that the conjugate is mainly in the polarization component, which is approximately 400 times stronger that the component. F has a power of 84 mW and B has a power of 24 mW. The laser frequency is kept on the largest peak. At a low signal power, a reflectivity of almost 49 is obtained. The two-photon linewidth measured by the applying magnetic field, is about 1 MHz, confirming that the conjugation is due to coherent population trapping.
