Paper Abstract

The use of diode lasers to cool and trap Cesium atoms in a low Cs pressure cell allows the construction of a relatively simple and reliable atomic fountain frequency standard. Here we discuss the design and the potentialities of the Cs clock frequency standards being built at L.P.T.F..
