We present a spatial mode analysis of a self-adaptive holographic laser oscillator formed by a non-linear medium in a self-intersecting loop geometry incorporating additional intracavity elements and a feedback mirror acting as output coupler. We use an ABCD transfer matrix approach for cavity elements as well as the four-wave mixing in the nonlinear medium and demonstrate transient evolution as well as self-consistent steady-state solutions for the fundamental mode configuration. We find the transient case evolves to the self-consistent solution if one exists. We show the effects of intracavity lens focal length and position in cavity, as well as the finite transverse dimensions of the nonlinear medium, on the size of the self- consistent mode to find regimes for large mode size, good phase conjugate quality and low loss operation.
