Abstract : Effort has been directed toward the analysis of the proposed Stark effect tunable amplifier. The frequency range, power output, noise and Q have been derived from physical considerations and a series of experiments have been planned to determine device feasibility. Critical material parameters, such as relaxation time, impurity level density, and impurity spectra have been related to device performance. A series of experiments have been designed to measure the critical material parameters and determine device feasibility. The experimental design and equipment are described in detail. An analysis made of the delay line tunable amplifier indicates considerable promise for this over a broad frequency range. Material parameters are discussed along with the expected frequency and temperature performance. Construction and evaluation will be completed during the next quarter. (Author)
