Neutral atom optical frequency standards at PTB
Author(s): Fritz Riehle; Tatiana Nazarova; Harald Schnatz; Thomas Legero; Uwe Sterr

Paper Abstract

Due to their orders-of-magnitude higher frequencies, optical frequency standards are beginning to outperform the best microwave standards with respect to their stability and accuracy and, hence, offer very promising prospects for novel space-based applications. We report on recent results for optical standards in PTB based on neutral atoms and discuss the suitability of the different approaches for space applications.
