Abstract

An attempt has been made to Q-switch the cw 337-μm maser, but no large increase in peak power was observed. The gain factors of 337-μm radiation for pulsed and cw discharges have been measured and found to be 70% per meter and 10% per meter, respectively. It has also been shown that the pulsed maser is saturated in normal operation. Multiple pulse emission has been observed with the output delayed by times of the order 750 μsec after the applied electrical pulse.
