Abstract : An attempt is made to outline the key avenues of research and the functional distribution of the leading Soviet scientific personnel engaged in maser development. For purposes of this study, a correlative analysis was applied to the published literature to develop the functional relationships among individual papers and their authors. Such correlative analysis was applied to significant research reports, reviews of scientific development, tutorial papers, and popular articles published in the USSR in the field of maser research since its inception, around 1954, to the present. The four main areas of Soviet maser research which are presented graphically are: (1) semiconductors (infrared and optical ranges); (2) paramagnetics (all ranges); (3) gas media (infrared and optical ranges); and (4) molecular beams (microwave range).
