Abstract
We investigate both codirectional and contradirectional nonlinear couplers composed of two nonlinear waveguides operating by second harmonic generation. We take into account possible mismatches inside the waveguides and between them. Quantum statistical characteristics, such as photon number distribution, its factorial moments, quadrature and integrated intensity vari- ances and quadrature uncertainty product can demonstrate effects of transmission of light between waveguides. Incident beams can be assumed to be coherent, squeezed and mixed with external noise. Second harmonic modes are assumed to be pumped with strong coherent beams. Nonclassical behavior of beams generated by the nonlinear waveguides can be transferred between them and controlled by linear and nonlinear mismatches. In the contradirectional regime of propagation asymptotic nonclassical states can be generated.
