Abstract : Work that has been completed on a packaged millimeter wave maser program is presented. A dielectric cavity maser was successfully operated at a frequency of 70 gc using the iron ion, Fe(3+) in a host crystalline structure of titanium dioxide, rutile. A traveling wave maser was designed, using dielectric slowing of rutile; however, problems encountered in matching the dielectric material to the microwave circuitry prevented delivery of a completed system. A new superconducting magnet design was completed during the program, and new ferrite isolator materials were investigated to determine their behavioras a function of temperature. (Author)
