Calcium Thermal Beam Optical Clock

A simple, compact alternative to the highest performing optical standards, the Ca clock uses a thermal beam of neutral atoms with one or two lasers to achieve

Compact Cold Atom Instruments

The cooling of atoms to microkelvin temperatures using lasers is currently enabling a new generation of precision instruments that take advantage of the long

FPGA Design

Our group is developing FPGA based digital phase noise measurement and control systems.

Frequency Comb Spectroscopy

We use frequency combs based on ultrafast mode-locked lasers to perform precision spectroscopy in the near- and mid-infrared domains, for rapid, high

Yb Lattice Clock

Our Group is developing high stability, high accuracy optical atomic clocks based on thousands of Yb atoms confined to an optical lattice. Such clocks will find

Microresonator Device Research

With micro-resonators (fabricated in house or by collaborators) we are developing microcombs, integrated reference cavities and low-noise laser sources. The

NIST-on-a-Chip in ADI

We are developing core technology tools to enable chip-scale standards that realize a broad range of base and derived SI units in compact, manufacturable

Noise Metrology

We provide state-of-the-art phase and amplitude noise measurements for signals from RF to optical frequencies.
