Abstract : The patent describes a parametric optical system in which an object beam of a first frequency is combined within an optically nonlinear medium with a substantially planar optical pump beam of a second frequency to provide either an upconverted image at the sum (or difference) frequency or an amplified version of the object beam, depending upon the design of the nonlinear medium.
