Saturation characteristics and response times are examined for a liquid suspension of Brownian microparticles subjected to electromagnetic fields in a four-wave mixing configuration. Calculations are presented for the evolution of particle density in the field of two degenerate plane waves of arbitrary intensity and angle of incidence. The analysis is then extended to include the additional presence of weak probe and conjugate-wave fields. Nonlinear field particle interactions are shown to give rise to the formation of higher order particle gratings and to novel pump grating modulation effects which greatly enhance the phase-conjugate characteristics of the microparticle suspension.
