Full text of article: Russian language.

Abstract:
An expression for the time response of a four-wave converter of radiation on thermal nonlinearity has been obtained. It has been shown numerically, that the increases of thickness of a nonlinear layer lead to the growth of time response width. The time dependence of wavefront reversal quality at four-wave interaction has been analyzed.

Key words:
four-wave interaction, thermal nonlinearity, four-wave converter of radiation, time response.
