Paper Abstract

We examine phase properties of the contradirectional nonlinear asymmetric coupler with the second harmonic generation. We derive a phase distribution using the concept of phase space. An interesting behavior of the linear mode, namely bifurcation of the phase distribution and phase switching are demonstrated. It is shown that light initially in the coherent state approximately maintains its phase properties during amplification through its Poissonian photon-number statistics are not conserved.
