Paper Abstract

Thales Electron Devices and OEI Opto AG (subsidiary of RUAG AG) currently develop the engineering model of the Optical Space Cs Clock (OSCC) in the framework of an ESA/CNES project. Recent progress of the project is reported. Emphasis is put on the implementation of an isolator-free optics subsystem and on the space evaluation of the seeding DFB laser and the fluorescence detecting large area photodiode.
