From phase to amplitude modulation in transverse nonlinear optics

Abstract

This paper shows that an input phase (amplitude) modulated beam can be effectively converted to an amplitude (phase) modulated output in a frequency converter such as the resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO). This peculiar conversion property is, however, not restricted to the OPO but applies to a wide variety of broad area nonlinear cavities.
