Design of the optical system for 171-ytterbium single-ion optical clock
Optical frequency standards based on trapped ions have made great progress over the past decades. In this paper, the design of the optical system for an optical atomic clock based on single 171-ytterbium ion at NIM is proposed. According to the requirements for ionization, cooling, repump, interrogation, and detection, the basic optical system design and frequency stabilization scheme are introduced.
