Parametric gains are always low and are of best use in laser cavities. OPO. An optical parametric oscillator is a laser in which the optical gain is produced in a parametric crystal rather than by an electronic inverted population. The analysis of this application is beyond the scope of this short introduction and is usually described in quantum-electronics textbooks. We will merely point out that one can set up laser cavities oscillating at both ampliﬁed frequencies or only one, depending on needs.
4 Applications of Parametric Eﬀects. Second-harmonic generation is by far the most commonly used optical nonlinear eﬀect in the ﬁeld of lasers. Argon ion lasers are poor converters of electrical energy to light; a 10−3 conversion yield is a good ﬁgure. Solid-state lasers, on the contrary, are more eﬃcient converters, for which a yield ten times larger is readily achievable. Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF, Nd:glass, etc. 06 μm and it is therefore of useful policy to double this frequency, since a 30 % doubling yield is easy to realize.

When the superposition principle can be applied to electromagnetic waves or when the properties of matter do not depend on the intensity of light, one speaks of linear optics.
