This paper discusses a fundamental difference between the symmetry properties of a laser with conventional optical feedback and that of a laser with phase-conjugate feedback. As a consequence, the possible dynamics and bifurcations for these two types of laser systems differ considerably, a fact that has not been noted in earlier comparisons between these two systems.
