Title: Free-space optical time-frequency transfer over 2 km
Published: June 09, 2013
Abstract: Precision free-space time-frequency transfer could advance fields where present microwave-based transfer is inadequate. We demonstrate an optical free-space link with femtosecond timing deviation and residual instability below 10−18 at 1000 seconds.
