Abstract:

The purpose of this work is to develop techniques to overcome the fundamental limits of present frequency standards---the second order and residual first-order Doppler shifts. Suitable frequency reference transition are studied in ions which are stored on electromagnetic traps and cooled by radiation pressure to 1K. Keywords Atomic spectroscopy Doppler narrowing Doppler shifts Frequency standards High resolution spectroscopy Ion storage Laser spectroscopy Penning trap Radiation pressure.
