Abstract : Research on optical masers and the exploration of possible optical maser devices are the principal objectives of the work carried out under this contract. Part I gives a detailed account of the crystal field calculations for some states of Eu3+ and Tb3+ in YAG. Part II reports on measurements of the output beam characteristics of high quality ruby rods. Finally in Part III are summarized some long range transmission measurements that have been conducted over a distance of approximately 23 miles. (Author)
