For a 3-mirror cavity with a single curved mirror, the g-factor is (1-p/R)^2; there is no factor of 2 in the denominator because for a ring cavity the overall cavity length is equal to the round-trip length.

Also, I think we should shoot for a transmission of at least 90%. If this is going to be for general lab use, then there will probably be situations where people want a good power throughput. The input power might be as high as 2 W if used, e.g., at the 40m with one of those Innolight Mephistos.
