A simple result of scalar diffraction theory is used to derive the round trip phase accrual of a plane wave in dye laser oscillators containing gratings. This is used to determine configurations where the standing wave condition is satisfied at the feedback wavelength throughout an angle scan. We find that at least one such exactly synchronous configuration always exists regardless of oscillator type.
