The high frequency limitation of gamma ray lasers (grasers), the laser condition for feasible densities and the use of polarized nuclei in grasers is discussed. It is shown that, with polarized nuclei, directed emission and switched graser control are feasible. Experimental techniques and results for both resonant and non- resonant notations of the γ-radiation distributions from polarized radioactive nuclei are presented.
