I'm currently making a function within which I determine a Reflectivity value by solving the equation using solve().
However, the answers given are always values of pi, how do I solve this?
[Result, y] = lorentz(0, 0.725, 15)
function [Result, y] = lorentz(position, CavityLength, BaseRD)
%Enter position, cavity length in m and baserd in microseconds.
c = 299792458; %speed of light in m/s
BaseRD = BaseRD*10^-6;
syms Reflectivity
S = vpasolve(((pi*sqrt(Reflectivity))/(1-Reflectivity))/(c/(2*CavityLength)) == BaseRD, Reflectivity, [0.99 1]);
Result.Reflectivity = S;
Result.Finesse = (pi*sqrt(Result.Reflectivity)/(1-Result.Reflectivity));
Result.FSR = c/(2*CavityLength);
FWHM = Result.FSR./Result.Finesse;
Result.HWHM = FWHM/2;
x = linspace(-1e3,1e3,1e5);
y = (1/pi).*(Result.HWHM./(((x-position).^2)+Result.HWHM.^2));
%y = y.*(height/max(y));
Reflectivity: 0.99898752118560808161741982765188
Finesse: 987.1748605317811539461548191278*pi
FSR: 206753419.310345
HWHM: 104719.75511965978378924223514237/pi

Using this:
c = 299792458;
CavityLength = 0.725;
Pi = sym(pi, 'd');
syms Reflectivity
S = vpasolve(((Pi*sqrt(Reflectivity))/(1-Reflectivity))/(c/(2*CavityLength)) == 14.7E-6, Reflectivity, [0.99 1])
S = 
I get the answer I'm looking for.

The BaseRD value is different. And you get your answer.
Also, your comment was marked spam by the Auto Filter, idk how. I have removed the spam notice, and subsequently your flag as well.

Use sym(pi,'d') instead of pi
use sympref to set floating point output on
Use vpa
Use double. For example,
structfun(@double, Result, 'uniform', 0)

vpa will turn those products involving pi into more normal looking numbers. For example...
x = 17*sym(pi)
x = 
So x has pi in it.
ans = 
vpa yields a symbolic high precision floating point number. But double will also work, and create a double as a result.
ans = 53.4071
