We discuss theoretical grounds for the amplitude-phase method of coherent radiation frequency conversion. Potentialities of this method are demonstrated by its application to generation of two-frequency and two-band radiation in specialized frequency-modulation (FM) lidars with heterodyning and broad-band frequency modulation, respectively. Problems that arise in the development of electro-optical modulators for implementing this method are briefly considered and the ways of their solution are discussed.
