Title: ROLE OF DOUBLE-QUANTUM TRANSITIONS IN MASERS

Abstract

A generalized treatment of a three-level maser as an example of double- irradiation experiments is based on a previous analysis of multiple-quantum transitions in nuclear magnetic resonance. The emphasis in the present treatment, as distinct from other expositions of the same problem, is on the role of the double-quantum transitions. In particular, conditions are found in which the maser operation is mainly governed by the doublequantum process and does not require a true "pumping" stage. Such a case is realizable in practice but its technical applicability is questionable. A study of the behavior of various transitions in this example is instructive for understanding the general role of the double-quantum transitions in double-resonance experiments. (auth)
