Abstract

Two completely separate problem areas may be discerned in the theory of lasers and masers (collectively: quantum oscillators). The first area involves the determination of population inversion in the working medium and the realization of optimum emission conditions. The second area is concerned with the dynamics of quantum oscillators. The later is important in connection with the highly unique stimulation and development of self-sustained oscillatory processes in quantum oscillators. A characteristic feature of the operation of several solid-state quantum devices is contained in the pulsations of their radiation power. Three pulsation regimes are observed: damped pulsations phasing into emission at a steady power level, as well as undamped regular and irregular pulsations. Power pulsations are not observed in gas lasers of the helium—neon type.
