The purpose of this program is to develop improved maser techniques and apply them to a broad-band maser system. The final design parameters of the broad-band maser system have been established and a description of the breadboard system is presented in this report. Fabrication and procurement of the breadboard components have begun. A ridged-waveguide semiconductor limiting structure has been developed and the results obtained with it are also presented in this report. Limiting characteristics have been improved however, additional work is necessary in order to lower the limiting level so that the maser is adequately protected. Author
