We have measured the quadratic Zeeman coefficient for the 3P0 excited electronic state in 27Al+, C2=-71.944(24) MHz/T2 and the hyperfine constant of the 25Mg+

An 27Al+ quantum-logic clock with systematic uncertainty below 10-18

Samuel M. Brewer, Jwo-Sy Chen, Aaron M. Hankin, Ethan Clements, Chin-wen Chou, David J. Wineland, David Hume, David Leibrandt
We describe an optical atomic clock based on quantum-logic spectroscopy of the 1S0 3P0 transition in 27Al+ with a systematic uncertainty of 9.0 x 10-19 and a
