Abstract : This paper discusses the resonant cavity, the process of oscillation and the output of radiation of optical masers. Various factors affecting the process of quantum amplification and the resultant emission are studied. Certain criteria are proposed for evaluating the quality of a resonant cavity and of the operating media, and demonstrating the feasibility of the construction of a single mode resonant cavity. Experimental results of a ruby optical maser are described and analyzed. In particular, the resultant distribution of light frequency with respect to angle of radiation may be used to explain relevant experimental evidence. (Author)
