Abstract

G.D.Boyd and D.A.Kleinman have published a comprehensive analysis of the 'Parametric Interaction of Focused Gaussian Light Beams' (Ref.1 hereinafter referred to as BK). In this paper they derived the 'optimum' focusing and 'optimum' crystal length which minimized the pump power, P required to achieve optical parametric oscillation (OPO) in a given system. This optimization has proved very valuable in obtaining OPO in the visible and near infra-red. (The first CW oscillator (ref.2) based on Ba2NaNb5O15 provides an excellent example of the application of BK power optimization).
