I am inventing something, but in order for it to work, I need to know a method of emitting low frequancy (in the range of a 100hz) coherent and low/non converging radiation such as a laser does. The problem is that lasers emit very high frequancy em radiation (compared to the 100hz that I need). I have done some research and have found how lasers work and have found that there are things called masers which emit non/low-diverging coherent microwaves. But i need a much lower frequancy than microwaves. I had a few ideas, which i asked questions on. Such as: -Finding a material that has a difference of energy between one of its orbitals in the range of a radio wave photon and make it lase. -Using a parabolic reflector reflect radio waves emitted from an emitter at its focus in parallel rays. To solve the problem of reflecting such a large wavelength radiation, i proposed to have the whole set up be in a super high index of refraction material. (http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/2006-05/1149005243.Ph.q.html) -Slowing down the electrons in a free electron laser so that they'll emit lower frequancies. I've read that free electron lasers can emit microwaves as the lowest frequancy, but i don't see why they wouldn't emit a lower frequancy of the speed of the electrons is reduced.
Re: Is there a method for the creation of super low frequancy lasers?
