Title: System-Level Integration of a Chip-Scale Atomic Clock: Microwave Oscillator and Physics Package
Published: November 07, 2006
Abstract: We report on our progress in developing a prototype Chip-Scale Atomic Clock with the integration of the local oscillator and the physics package. A discussion of the design and results is given with a focus on frequency stability, size, and power consumption. Finally, we suggest methods to improve reliability.
