An overview on current trends in stimulated Brillouin scattering and optical phase conjugation is given. This report is based on the results of the "Second International Workshop on stimulated Brillouin scattering and phase conjugation" held in Potsdam/Germany in September 2007. The properties of stimulated Brillouin scattering are presented for the compensation of phase distortions in combination with novel laser technology like ceramics materials but also for e.g., phase stabilization, beam combination, and slow light. Photorefractive nonlinear mirrors and resonant refractive index gratings are addressed as phase conjugating mirrors in addition. © 2008 Copyright Cambridge University Press 2008.
