Stabilization of a microwave oscillator using a resonance Raman transition in a sodium beam. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Preliminary results on the stabilization of a 1772-MHz oscillator to a resonance Raman transition in an atomic beam of sodium are presented. Short-term stability of 5.6 x 10(-11) (tau = 100 sec) for a 15-cm Ramsey interaction-region separation has been achieved. Sources of frequency drift are briefly discussed.
