Seidel 1988: 37) The post-war, space-age climate made the ﬁction seem all the more feasible, as did the rate of discovery within the ﬁeld of opto-electronics: each time new laser materials were discovered, research found new reason to continue. Conﬁdence in technology was at a high during this initial period of discovery: the phenomenal impact of the transistor, for instance, was still being felt. Anything seemed possible. Science had successfully developed the ﬁrst ‘raw power’ weapon of science ﬁction – the atomic bomb – so why not try for the second?
They were supported by the US Department of Defense because of the device’s potential use in radar and microwave communications. By 1954, the team was able to produce a continual output of microwaves, at nano-Watt power. They called their creation the MASER (microwave ampliﬁcation by stimulated emission of radiation). The radiation proved to have considerably less frequency variation than the most stable device previously available, making the maser very attractive for a highprecision frequency standard.
