Progress Towards a Compact Cold-Atom Microwave Clock

Knapp, M; Walby, S; Haji, M; Foot, C; Gill, P (2023) Progress Towards a Compact Cold-Atom Microwave Clock. In: 2023 Joint Conference of the European Frequency and Time Forum and IEEE Frequency Control Symposium (EFTF/IFCS), 15-19 May 2023, Toyama, Japan.

Here we present progress towards a compact cold atom microwave clock. The system we have developed is currently a demonstrator for a clock architecture whereby a cloud of laser cooled caesium atoms are dropped and interrogated during free fall. We describe the experimental sequence as well as show preliminary results related to signal-to-noise ratio limits and Rabi microwave spectroscopy.
