    • Abstract


      Properties of a few saturable absorbers as candidates for low power optical phase conjugation (OPC) are examined. The specific systems studied are the dyes eosin, erythrosin B and Rose Bengal, doped in gelatin, polyvinyl alcohol and boric acid glass films. A method for quickly checking saturated absorption is suggested and demonstrated. Examples for OPC with these systems are cited and limitations are briefly discussed.
