Abstract : The first observations of coherent microwave radiation resulting from Cerenkov-Raman backscattering have been made and are reported. An extensive experimental investigation of vacuum Raman backscattering has also been made. Theoretical models are presented to calculate the frequency and the gain at interaction for both the Raman and the Cerenkov-Raman backscattering interactions. Experimental data are compared to theoretical predictions. (Author)
