This report is to present some considerations and experiments which were made in the course of design of an 8 mm traveling wave maser for radio astronomy application. In Part I a brief review of solid state maser theory and paramagnetic resonances will be made. In Part II some examples of the application of the spin Hamiltonian of paramagnetic material to maser design will be presented. Also, frequency characteristics of quarter wave matching transformers will be considered. At the end of Part II, the present scheme of impedance matching between standard waveguide to maser amplifier will be presented. In Part III some experiments which have been done to support the matching design determination of crystal axis by Laue back reflection method measurement of dielectric constant of materials which will be used in constructing maser amplifiers. Also, experimental considerations on broad band matching will be presented. Author
