Abstract:

Methods of fabrication of miniaturized pointcontact harmonic generators and detectors of millimeter-wave spectroscopy were developed which are efficiently reproducible and available for general spectroscopic use. Various methods of assembly, and a variety of semi-conducting materials, were assessed, and work was begun on ion-bombardment of semi-conductors for harmonic generation. A number of spectroscopic measurements were made partly during tests of harmonic generation, and partly with high-sensitivity spectrometers in the conventional microwave range. The analysis of some of the measurements in terms of molecular structures proved, in some cases, complex enough to require fairly extended computations, which are to be continued. In contrast, new measurements on certain isotopic species of simple molecules showed the need for revision of certain details of their structures. Author
