Title: Status of a compact cold-atom CPT frequency standard
Published: July 31, 2011
Abstract: We describe the main progress towards the realization of a cold atom frequency standard based on coherent population trapping (CPT). We explain our particular CPT configuration and give details on the experimental setup.
