Abstract : The report summarizes nine months of the second year activity of research on molecular lasers in the 100 to 1000 micron range. Progress on identifying the lasing specie and making energy level assignments for a water vapor laser are described. Also included is a summary of optimum output coupling of lasers by means of apertures and semi-transparent mirrors. This study was carried out at 337 microns wavelength. (Author)
