We demonstrate that in multi-stage optical parametric amplifiers, spatial and
temporal overlap of all products and pump on subsequent passes lead to strongly
phase-dependent conversion, which has important consequences for output noise
and beam profile characteristics. We verify a simple method to avoid this
