The purpose of this work is to develop techniques to overcome the fundamental limits of present frequency standards--the second and residual first-order Doppler shifts. To this end, suitable frequency reference transitions in ions which are stored in electromagnetic traps and cooled by radiation pressure to less than 1K were studied.
