A slow-time-scale, single-particle theory of the CARM oscillator with a Fabry-Perot resonator is presented for the case of mirror separation much greater than the Rayleigh length. Analytical results are obtained for the small-signal gain, efficiency and threshold current. The optimum nonlinear efficiency is presented in terms of F—μ plots.
