The reflectivity of a microcavity filled with a quadratic nonlinear material is shown to be actively changed by the interaction of two waves. Within this microcavity, the reflection coefficient of a weak wave at the fundamental frequency is changed from almost 0% to a value in the vicinity of 100% by the simultaneous incidence of an intense wave at the second-harmonic frequency. This change in reflectivity is shown to be in a large degree insensitive to the input phase difference between the two waves. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
