We present an analytic method for obtaining phase-matching conditions for general
three-wave mixing in biaxial crystals. The method is based on a rarely quoted
closed-form solution to the Fresnel equation. Additionally, we show how the
method can be used to obtain acceptance angles for both critical and noncritical
phase matching and apply the derived formulas to two examples.
