Abstract.  A study for the incidence geometry to extend the accepted incidence position is presented and demonstrated. High-speed and high-quality self-pumped phase conjugate mirrors (SPPCM) can be formed with a counter-direction incidence with respect to the master light for the Cat-SPPCM. In addition to a counter-directional Kitty-SPPCM, when the incidence position is changed, a Kitty-SPPCM with high-pass filtering and a different SPPCM similar to the Bridge-SPPCM can be found. The discovery of these three kinds of optical phase conjugators extends the accepted incidence position range and angle, helpful for applying the SPPCM in various new applications.
