An interferometric imaging setup is described that allows us to map the spatial distribution of the phase of a second-harmonic (SH) wave by using multimode laser sources with achromatic beam imaging of the fundamental and SH waves. Working distances > 1m and a robust setup allow experiments that were not possible before.
