Abstract : The purpose of this contract 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. The part of the project concerned with the excitation of molecular transitions is a study of the means of providing a highly stable exciting signal with sufficient power to induce transitions, and an investigation of the resonant structure techniques for exciting the beam. The second part, the study of detection techniques, covers methods of detecting molecular transitions with provision for using the detected signal for frequency control. (Author)
