Abstract

We have observed polarization-resolved coherent beam combination via nondegenerate two-wave mixing in water-glycerol suspensions of shaped polytetrafluoroethylene microparticles. Experiments detect coherent energy transfer arising from two different types of moving index gratings: translational and orientational. Additionally, the dependence of the two-wave mixing gain coefficient on the frequency-difference of the beams, pump intensity and microparticle volume fraction was measured and found to be in accord with theory. Finally, beam combination was also achieved by using degenerate laser beams and moving the suspension relative to the laser interference pattern.
