Room-temperature masers based upon photo-excited triplets in organic molecular crystals, such as pentacene-doped p-terphenyl, have poor thermal and mechanical properties and can only operate for short durations typically ~1 ms. Here we demonstrated a room-temperature maser based on optically-pumped nitrogen–vacancy defect centres in diamond that could operate continuously.

The maser is the microwave-frequency precursor of the now ubiquitous laser. But it had little technological impact compared with the laser because of inconvenience: masers typically require vacuum and cryogenic-temperature operating conditions. Overcoming these obstacles would pave the way for significant maser-based innovations from molecular biology to medicine, security, radio astronomy and quantum technologies. Here we demonstrated the first solid-state room-temperature maser, based on an organic molecular crystal of pentacene-doped p-terphenyl.
