Abstract : A Cerenkov-Raman Maser consists of an energetic electron beam, a dielectric resonator, and a static, rippled magnetic field pump. In the absence of the dielectric resonator, the device is, at longer wavelengths, identical to a stimulated Raman source and at shorter wavelengths, identical to the free electron laser. The addition of the dielectric resonator to the device gives a further degree of freedom to the doppler shift relations. Both modes can be used to form a Cerenkov-Raman maser.
