Abstract:

Maser development has matured to where there now are examples of applications to a number of systems. The problems associated with these applications are receiving more and more attention. Recently, significant advances have been made, making the application of masers to systems more feasible under more diverse environmental circumstances. Included is a description of the fundamental aspects of masers and a summary of the present state of development. To reveal areas where important contributions can be made to facilitate maser applications, advantages and disadvantages of masers as low-noise amplifiers are reviewed. The results of a number of applications are briefly surveyed to illustrate the masers potential, and an indication is given of some of the application possibilities of the future.
