Paper Abstract

The atomic fountain is a new high-performance primary frequency standard where the stability is of the order of 10-17 and the accuracy of the order of 10-16. Our goal is to realize such a standard in our laboratory. In an atomic fountain we can distinguish three basic parts: the cesium atom source, the microwave and the C-field region, and the detection are. In this paper we briefly recall an atomic fountain operation and present the first research results obtained in our laboratory concerning the atomic cesium fountain.
