Walkout

Figures 1 and 2 illustrate that the output signal inherited the aberration of the pump beam as its phase is modulated in the presence of spatial walk-off. Therefore, high-frequency modulation in the pump phase should be suppressed as much as possible to obtain a good-quality signal beam in the OPA process.
The phases of the signal ([[PHI].sub.s]), pump ([[PHI].sub.p]), and idler ([[PHI].sub.i]) are known to be fulfilled by the following relationship without walk-off effect and when the phase-matching condition is satisfied:
Equations (4) and (5) show that the phase of the output signal is independent of the pump phase, whereas the phase of the idler beam is related to the difference between [[PHI].sub.s] and [[PHI].sub.p] as the walk-off effect is neglected.
