The phase properties of pair coherent states in the two-mode Jaynes-Cummings model are investigated based on the Pegg-Barnett phase formalism. The general expressions of the properties for the phase-sum operator of the two correlated fields are presented, in which the Stark shifts are considered. Analytic results are given in the strong-field approximations. It is found that the phase properties such as the variance of the phase-sum operator and the variances of the cosine and the sine of the phase-sum operator exhibit characteristic periodic oscillations in which the period is determined solely by the Stark shifts.
