Abstract : An analysis of phonon maser action in CdS is given which includes the complications arising from the presence of off-axis ultrasonic waves. The treatment includes the angular variation of the velocity of sound and of the piezoelectric coupling constant and takes account of mode conversion at the cavity walls. Numerical results are given for CdS maser structures. (Author)
