It's in the standard nonlinear optics journals, texts, etc., plus a search (e.g., with Google) on the web will turn up lots of papers and work at universities, etc. Many of these papers can be downloaded (in pdf form, HTML, etc.).
Any technical library can furnish innumerable references on ordinary phase conjugate optics, etc.
None of these references will tell you how to "pump" in the time domain, for that has been my own contribution, as well as how to get that "time-polarized EM wave" for such pumping. The background for that sort of thing also uses quantum field theory concepts, particularly the time-polarized photon.
For starters, here are a few good refs:

Lebedev Physical Institute visited Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in 1972 and mentioned that a strange backwards-scattered EM wave that restored order after returning back through a disordering process in optical experiments had been observed in stimulated Brillouin backscattering.
