Whilst PrisonPlanet is Busy Banning my comments, literally just now, (Amazing, What a Great Guy!) I received this message reply from Prof Mark in reply to a general question on the development of this field !!!

I am more than happy to talk with radio/astronomy enthusiasts about hardware, experiments and practical challenges. They often understand things better than the pros! I attach a copy of the Nature letter in case you have not managed to get your hands on a copy.

There are also an “intro” to the technology and a lecture (for a general non-specialist audience) on youtube that you can watch

Please note that, at present, the pentacene maser (as reported above) only amplifiers in the L-band at near 1.45 GHz (near the 21 cm hydrogen line), with a bandwidth of a few MHz, and in pulsed mode.  I am currently doing research towards improvements that avoid these limitations: CW operation, at other frequencies (UHF to C-band) and somewhat greater bandwidth –though still nowhere as broad as what GaAs or InP HEMT-based amplifiers offer."
