Abstract:

As a result of the ISTIDA Gamma-Ray Laser Workshop held in May 1985, a general picture of the gamma-ray laser has emerged. The characteristics of the radiation from this source are contrasted with those from other coherent sources these include energy, bandwidth, intensity, and coherence length. Potential nonmilitary applications are listed and two classes of military applications are suggested. Those characteristics which drive a specific application are spelled out.
