Transient experiments in gas-phase microwave spectroscopy of rotational transitions have developed rapidly in the past few years and show promise of remaining an area of ongoing theoretical and experimental research. The various phenomena involved are now sufficiently understood that it is possible to present a more-or-less unified treatment and comparison with the better-known transient experiments in magnetic resonance. Although isolated reports of the observation of microwave transient effects appear earlier in the literature (Dicke and Romer, 1955; Unland and Flygare, 1966; Hill et al., 1967; Harrington, 1968), transient phenomena did not begin to attract widespread attention until about 1972 (Levy et al.,1972; Macke and Glorieux, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1976; Wang et al., 1973a; Brittain et al.,1973; Amano and Shimizu, 1973; McGurk et al., 1974b,c,d; Brown, 1974; Weatherly et al., 1974; Dobbs et al., 1975; Mäder et al., 1975; Hoke et al., 1975; Somers et al., 1975; Coy, 1975).
