"A Compact, All-optical Rubidium Clock with H-MASER Stability"

This seminar will present an optical atomic clock based on a two-photon transition at 778 nm in rubidium that could be made small and robust enough to be used outside of a laboratory environment. We will cover the clocks principals of operation, fundamental limitations and data supported current status. We will show that this system is fundamentally capable of besting a hydrogen MASER in frequency stability and size.
