Paper Abstract

Recent advances in theoretical and experimental research concerned with the feasibility of the gamma-ray laser are reviewed. The discussion covers the principal concepts, pump calibration, giant pumping resonances, and the development of a laser model. A quantitative model based on new data and concepts demonstrates the feasibility of the gamma-ray laser.
