A rigorous method for analyzing the effect of optical activity on a phase conjugate wave (PCW) generated in photorefractive Bi12SiO20 (BSO) is described. Using the method, the PCW intensity and its polarization angle versus the input polarization angle of the probe beam are numerically evaluated for two transverse configurations, with a static electric field generated approximately along the ⟨001⟩ direction or the ⟨11¯0⟩ direction, respectively. Both the observed PCW intensity and its polarization angle are in reasonable agreement with the theory. The result indicates that optical activity has a pronounced influence on the properties of the PCW. The analysis is applicable to any isotropic photorefractive crystal with optical activity
