Title: Yb Optical Lattice Clock
Published: November 23, 2008
Abstract: We describe the development and latest results of an optical lattice clock based on neutral Yb atoms, including investigations based on both even and odd isotopes. We report a fractional frequency uncertainty below 10-15 for 171Yb.
