Abstract:

Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems; as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems. In optical atomic clocks, Allan Deviations<10^-15 at 1 s are needed if the readout of the atomic ensemble is to be limited by projection noise. We follow the lead of others, and propose a cryogenic silicon cavity, at the zero crossing temperature near 124 K. The cavity will be mad as compact as possible, to make it portable for operation outside laboratories.
