Paper Summary on Optical Atomic Clocks by Dr Chris Perella

Two-color rubidium fiber frequency standard – Optics Letters

We developed a new type of optical atomic clock where we guide light inside a gas-filled hollow-core optical fibre. The intimate contact between the gas atoms and the light allows us to exactly fix the colour of the light to correspond to a resonance in the atoms. The high performance, and compactness of this device, allows it to be used in applications such as telecommunication and navigation systems.
