Abstract:

A resonant cavity filled with HC12N14 gas was used to obtain amplification of electromagnetic radiation of 3.4 mm wavelength. An incoming radiation spectrum consisting of a local oscil lator component which is sufficiently intense to saturate the 3.4 mm rotational resonance of the gas and weak sidebands information signal is reflected from the gas-filled, 34 inch diameter, 6 inch long cylindrical cavity. Under certain conditions, the non-linear properties of the gas eous medium can be used to yield a stable infor mation signal gain of 20db. Author
