Paper Abstract

We present a simple analytical solution for singly resonant OPO. The present analysis permits calculating the depletion efficiency of the OPO even when the resonated signal suffers from strong intracavity losses. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first model, which yields an analytical formula in the depleted signal case. The model can be a useful tool to design cavity mirror reflectivity for a given pump intensity and intracavity losses.
