The conventional FWM phase conjugation technique and the intracavity one have been studied experimentally in a gain medium of a pulsed e-beam sustained CO2 laser. The total reflectivity of 45% for the phase-conjugate beam energy of 0.3 J is reported. The periodic temporal modulation of the laser output and of the phase-conjugate beam intensity for intracavity FWM arrangement has been observed. Two types of density gratings in the medium (temperature and acoustic ones) are used to explain experimental results.
