Is Cavity.power wrong?
Maybe I'm just being stupid, but shouldn't the cavity power here be way larger, given its finesse?
from finesse import Model from finesse.components import Cavity, Mirror m11 = Mirror("m11", T=500e-6, L=0, Rc=12) m12 = Mirror("m12", T=30e-6, L=0) model_linear = Model() model_linear.connect(m11.p1, m12.p1, L=9) cav_linear = Cavity("cav_linear", m11.p1.o, m11.p1.i) model_linear.add(cav_linear) cav_linear.update()
>>> print(cav_linear.power, cav_linear.finesse) 0.9994700150000001 11852.26020795043
Maybe I have to apply some kind of tuning? (It doesn't seem to work from what I've tried so far).
Cavity.power docs say it's "The steady-state cavity power as a fraction the incoming power." It's calculated from the tracer so I can't easily see where it comes from.
