Abstract : The purpose of this effort is to investigate the excitation and detection techniques for molecular millimeter wave transitions which can be used to develop a frequency standard operating in the region of 200 to 300 Gc. Electric resonance experiments were performed at 369 GHz in H2S. This is the highest frequency at which molecular beam experiments have been performed. Mixing experiments are described in which the sum frequency of 2 millimeter oscillators is used for the observation of an carbonyl sulfide absorption line. Phase-locking of millimeter klystrons at frequencies as high as 122 GHZ is treated. The observation of two Stark components of the reversible rotational transition in LiF is reported. Stark measurements, temperature variation of the gas source, and frequency control of a crystal oscillator by the molecular beam are described.
