Abstract

We present a theoretical treatment of difference-frequency generation in conditions of phase mismatch for seed and generated fields that propagate at different angles to the pump. The analytical solution in the case of nondepleted plane-wave pump and experiments performed with seed fields strongly phase and amplitude modulated show that the pump-field wave fronts behave as efficient phase-conjugating mirrors.
