An experimental device, which can be used as a very high resolution microwave spectrometer, a microwave amplifier, or a very stable oscillator, has been built and operated. The device, as used on the ammonia inversion spectrum, depends on the emission of energy inside a high-Q cavity by a beam of ammonia molecules. Lines whose total width at half-maximum is six to eight kilocycles have been observed with the device operated as a spectrometer. As an oscillator, the apparatus promises to be a rather simple source of a very stable frequency.
