Abstract: We present a comprehensive and self-consistent theory of the relative phase between fundamental and harmonic modes in the nonlinear process of second-harmonic generation. We introduce an adequate polar decomposition of the field amplitudes that leads to a truly Hermitian relative-phase operator, whose eigenstates correctly describe the phase properties of the fields. We find the probability distribution for the relative phase and, by using a numerical diagonalization of the interaction Hamiltonian, we study its time evolution. This evolution shows quite different asymptotic behaviours for long times depending on the total number of quanta.
