Abstract
This paper describes systems of backward wave oscillator (BWO) frequency stabilization using the frequency lock on gas absorption lines. Broadband BWO were stabilized on OCS absorption lines in the millimeter wavelength range and on water absorption lines in the submillirneter wavelength range. Two frequency-lock loops (FLL) were used: first FLL - in separate points of frequency band on absorption lines, second FLL - on gas absorption lines with ±100 MHz band of frequency alteration near line. The use of stabilization on gas absorption line improve a long time and short time BWO frequency instability to values _10-8.
