Abstract

We derive the properties of a pump-resonant singly resonant optical parametric oscillator for which the pump and one of the parametrically generated waves share a common cavity. Wave-vector mismatch and focusing effects are taken into account. We calculate the oscillation threshold and its dependence on emission wavelengths as the result of mode shape changes. The conversion efficiencies for signal and idler waves are calculated. It is shown that one can maximize the conversion efficiencies by optimizing mirror transmissivities. The interference effects that occur in a standing-wave geometry and the mode content of the nonresonant wave are also analyzed.
