Abstract:

A quantum-mechanical treatment is presented of the radiation behavior of molecules in the detuning cavity. The phenomenon that was discovered by Higa Rev. Sci. Instr., 28, 1957, p. 726 in his experiment with a double-cavity maser is explained namely, when the detuning frequency of the first cavity reaches a certain critical value, the amonia molecules in the second cavity suddenly break out into oscillation at the central frequency. A critical formula for the detuning that excites such sudden oscillation is obtained. The influence of the cooperation effect is also taken into consideration. Also qualitatively explained is the experiment performed by Strakhovskiy et al. J. Exp. Theor. Phys., 42, 1962, p. 907 which relates the degree of detuning in first cavity with the radiative power of the molecules in second cavity. Author
