Title: A Compact Cold-Atom Frequency Standard Based on Coherent Population Trapping
Published: May 24, 2012
Abstract: We present the status of our cold-atom clock based on coherent population trapping, including the present clock stability and a preliminary evaluation of the three main systematic frequency shifts: the 1st-order Doppler shift, the Zeeman shift, and the light shift.
