Abstract:
The influence of feedback for both signal and object waves on the amplitude reflection coefficient of a four-wave radiation converter on thermal nonlinearity has been considered. The dependences of the reflection coefficient of a four-wave converter on the parameters of a ring-type resonator, which provides the feedback, and the pump intensity have been obtained and analyzed. It was shown that the use of a ring-type resonator allows one to increase the reflection coefficient of a four-wave radiation converter on thermal nonlinearity by several times.

Keywords:
four-wave radiation converter, positive feedback, thermal nonlinearity.
