Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation(MASER)

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear University of Cambridge,
What is a MASER(Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation)?
When were they first invented ?
What are their possible applications?
I believe they are used by some satellites to communicate with their bases back on Earth .How powerful do they have to be to do this ?
Do any of them use superconducting materials? And if they do how powerful are such devices?
Has you institution been involved in research into such devices?

Yours faithfully,

Paul Gaffney
