We develop a model of large-signal steady-state magneto-optic parametric oscillation in the Faraday configuration of a singly resonant cavity. The conversion efficiency and the threshold and phase-matching conditions are discussed, and we show that tunable phase matching can be achieved by use of a static magnetic field, eliminating any walk-off effects.
